Easy as Pie: Guilt-Free Pie Recipes

Apple and Honey Pie

This is just the pie you crave when apple season comes around, but there's no guilt involved. It has all the classic flavors of a traditional apple pie -- crispy slices of apple, sprinkles of cinnamon, and a healthy amount of honey all nestled in a warm crust -- but there is no butter nor a need to cover the pie with strips of fattening dough. A simple scoop of low-fat vanilla ice cream is all the topping you need for this wholesome winner. Start slicing!

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients

Olive Oil Crust 2/3 cups extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup ice water
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Apples and Honey Filling 5-6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
3 tablespoons sugar or Splenda
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

To make crust: Place olive oil in freezer in ice cube freezer tray until firm. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until a smooth ball forms. Refrigerate for one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out dough as you would standard piecrust. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes to set crust for filling.

To make filling: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour filling into prepared crust and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown and apples are tender.

Please Fitness Magazine...you must remake the recipe for the pie crust. It is impossible to make it one inch thick, with this amount of dough. Horrible that you don't listen to these comments. Please try to make it yourself before inflicting it on others.

I made this sweet potato pie. It's pretty good. The biggest problem is that the ingredients for the crust claims it will make enough to fill the pie plate, with an excess amount to trim. It doesn't even come close.

Shame on Fitness Magazine for calling these recipes "guilt free". The chocolate mint pie is 16 WW points per piece!
