pastry for a double crust pie

7 cups peeled and sliced apples

3/4 cup Splenda granular

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 1/2 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Line a 9-inch pie pan with pastry crust.  In a large bowl, combine the apples, Splenda, and cinnamon and stir until apples are coated.  Pile into the pie plate.  Dot with the butter.  Cover with another sheet of pastry and fold edges over to seal.  Flute with a fork or use fingers to press a design on the edges.  Cut small slits in the top pastry to allow steam to escape.  Bake at 425 degrees for 50 minutes or until the crust is brown and the apples are tender.  To check apples, pierce with a fork through one of the steam vents.

This pie is great with a scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream!


1 9-inch baked pie shell

1 15-oz can no-sugar-added peach halves

1 tbsp Splenda granular

1 1 3/4-oz pkg sugar-free Instant French Vanilla Pudding Mix


1 carton frozen sugar-free whipped topping, thawed

Drain peach halves, reserving juice in a liquid measuring cup.  Chill the juice by placing in freezer for a few minutes.  Place peach halves, cut side down on a cutting board.  Cut into chopped-sized pieces by cutting one way and then the other.  Cover bottom of prepared pastry crust with the peach pieces.  Sprinkle the Splenda granular over the peaches.  Empty pudding mix into a small mixing bowl.  Add enough milk to the peach juice to make a total of 1 3/4 cups.  Add peach juice/milk mixture to the pudding mix and beat well for a couple of minutes with a wire whisk.  Pudding should be fairly thick.  Spread pudding over the peaches.  Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.  To serve, top with whipped topping
