My FIL is diabetic and I wanted a dessert he could enjoy for Christmas, but I was sooo nervous about this because I've never made a pie before and without the sugar I just wasn't sure how this would turn out. I had no need to worry, this pie was simple and tasted delicious. Without the extra sugar, all the flavor of the apples really comes out. I tried half Granny Smith and half Golden Delicious, but since my husband said he liked the sweeter pie (he was the only one) I might try all sweet apples next time. BTW, I tried the variation one of the other reviewers suggested... not pre-cooking the apples and sauce and baking the pie for 1 hour. I was happy with the firmness of the apples but the sauce just cooked in a big clump on the bottom. From now on I will at least thicken up the sauce before pouring over the apples and baking.
