The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
We all know that less white sugar is better for us, right? People realized that in the 1960's, too, and there are some pretty tasty sugar-free dessert recipes from that decade. Here is one of them - Sugar-Free Apple Pie...
Lois Elaine's Sugar-Free Apple Pie:
1 can (6 oz. frozen apple juice concentrate
2 T. cornstarch
1 T. butter or butter substitute
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
6 c. sliced apples
Bring juice and cornstarch to a boil. Mix in all other ingredients. Mix apples into mixture thoroughly. Fill pieshell and place top crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
For extra sweetness, add 2 T. Sugar Twin Brown Sugar (my note: or a little Splenda brown sugar).
