The apple pie was delicious and no-one guessed that it was sugar-free! I added a dash of ginger and used a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg and this worked out really well. Try it!

I used the sweetest Georgia peaches for this pie. I followed the recipe to a "T," and it was runny, runny, runny. I had made other sugarfree pies that didn't completely set up so after reading the reviews on this one I thought, well maybe the steps taken in this recipe will make for a better pie as far as it setting up. Boy was I wrong, this one didn't set up at all. It was a flop and not only that it tasted bad. I will go back to my old way of making sugar free pies. I'm glad however, everyone else had luck with it, but for me it was a bomb.

MY HUSBAND AND MY FATHER ARE DIABETIC AND THIS RECIPE IS WONDERFUL FOR THEM. I TOOK IT TO A FAMILY REUNION AND NOBODY GUESSED THAT IT WAS SUGARFREE. EVERYONE THAT HAS TRIED A SLICE OF THIS PIE, CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT.

I used this recipe for Thanksgiving Day for the simple fact that I'm a borderline diabetic and I hate it when others get to eat pie and I can't. After the meal was over and all had their desserts...I looked around and the apple pie was gone and several were asking where I got the pie at and I told them that I made it and they said, "No Way!" So I would like to say Thank You for submitting this recipe and I truly recommend it to everyone.

I made this with 3 cans unsweetened peaches. Could have used 4 cans. It was wonderful....

This recipe turned out really good. I have an insulin dependent diabetic family member and he was the only one informed that it was sugar free so he could have a piece of the pie.He didn't feel left out at dessert. Everyone raved about how good it was.

I recently made this for a diabetic friend who is still raving about it, days and days later. Thanks so much for sharing.
