Holiday Traditions are a bit harder for someone that has an allergy or diabetes. My mom has had diabetes her whole life and she has quite the sweet tooth just like I do. But she had to learn how to eat something different. While everyone else was eating Pumpkin Pie or Pecan Pie she would always bring her own pie to eat. And it was still quite delicious. My Mom would make a sugar free Apple Pie.

2 Crust, pie, ready to bake, 10"
7 cup peeled apple slices (baking apples)
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, granulated (Splenda) (Before Splenda my mom would use Sweet N Low but I can’t remember how much, I know it wasn’t a whole cup)
3 tbsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Set 1 pie crust into a pie plate.
Place apples in a large bowl. Combine in a small bowl Splenda, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over apples and toss to coat. Spoon apple mixture into pie crust.
Place second crust over filling. Seal edges, trim and flute. Make small openings in crust to release steam. Bake until top crust is golden, approximately 40 to 50 minutes.
