The holidays are among us and that means it’s time for baking!  I make a large variety of goodies throughout the season, however I do like to take into consideration our family and friends who can’t have a lot of sugar.  This Low-Sugar Apple Pie looks and tastes every bit as good as an original apple pie, but with less sugar and calories.  Make sure this is on your baking list for everyone to enjoy!

  8. Roll out the top crust and drape it over the pie, or lattice weave
strips of dough over the top.

with cinnamon. Crimp the edges and cut several vents in the top.

more, or until the apples are tender when pierced with a skewer and the
