Thr recipe was very easy and straightforward. It comes out pretty darn sour with no sugar and that much lemon like MASMAY said. I used about 1/4 cup of sugar with this recipe and it was still sour. The lemon overpowered the taste of the apples and you really rely on the apples for all of the sweetness in this pie. Although I did get some nice comments nobody came back for seconds. The next time I use this recipe I'll either cut the lemon in half and add 1/4 cup of sugar (or and equivelence of sugar substitute) or try JSONEAL's idea of 1Tbsp OJ instead of lemon juice. Read More

I cannot say enough good things about this recipe! Very Easy! I lightly covered with tinfoil the last ten minutes of cooking to keep from getting too brown. Read More

This recipe was excellent. I added a cup of blueberries because I was short apples used orange juice like the other reader suggested and a splash of vanilla. Overall excellent it doesn't need sugar at all. The granny smith apples made the pie tangy and refreshing. Read More

I was hopeful this would be great but it was a disaster. I used granny smiths with the lemon (maybe should have used orange as recommended) and it was sour and not sweet at all. I followed the recipe to the letter I believe but had no takers after two pieces. Big disappointment as we have loved a no sugar apple pie from BJ's in the past. Thanks but it was not for us.

This was my first ever apple pie and I probably should have paid more attention to the fact that there wasn't any sugar involved but this pie came out sour and dry. It needs a lot more sweetness and moisture perhaps pre-cooking the apples would help? Read More

Very good! I left out the lemon juice and the salt and added about a 1/4 cup of sugar and used grimes golden apples. Next time I'll try using even less sugar or maybe some splenda. Read More
