Low-sugar Apple Pie Filling Recipe
This recipe calls for only 1/4 cup of honey to sweeten an apple pie! I promise you, you will not be disappointed. It is very nice. Serve it with a slice of cheddar cheese on the side... my father used to say, "Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze!"
7 cups apples, cored and sliced. You may peel them or not according to your preference.
1 Tablespoon quick tapioca pearls
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pastured egg + 1 egg white
Stir all the ingredients together thoroughly.
Pour into a 9 inch pie plate lined with pie crust of your choice.
Top with a vented pie crust (cut a few slits in the top) and flute the edges.
Bake at 350 F for approximately 1 hour
After baking the pie for 60 minutes, insert a small sharp knife into one of the vents in the top crust and test to see if the apples are done. They should be very soft, and this time can vary with the variety of apples you use. If they are still a little firm, you will need to bake it longer.
Allow to cool well before serving.
