I simmered the granny smith apples for about 5 minutes & used Langer's frozen apple juice (11.5 oz.) which was labeled as having no added sugar. I made my own thin graham cracker crust, omitted the top crust, & topped the pie with chopped walnuts, as one reviewer suggested. The pie didn't have any artificial sugar aftertaste as the sweetener is apple juice. I wasn't sure about adding 3 Tbsp of cornstarch as I'd seen recipes with less but the consistency was fine. I made this for Father's Day for my diabetic dad and everyone loved it. My sister pronounced it "perfect" & asked me for the recipe.

Made this for my diabetic dad who said it was great, but this is NOT a 'no sugar' apple pie. It's a 'no sugar ADDED' apple pie. The no sugar added apple concentrate had 28 grams of sugar! I used granny smith apples, because they are less sweet. I will keep looking for another recipe that has less sugar overall. By mistake, I made the concentrate/cornstarch mixture first, before peeling the apples, and then afterwards it was goopy and did not mix well into the rest of the mixture, but had it been done right it would have made a really nice gooey pie. Actually my dad just checked his blood sugar and it's really high!!!! Stay away, diabetics!

I served this to my family for Thanksgiving, including my father who is diabetic, and they loved it!

I just made this and have to say--this apple pie is genius! Seriously, it is unbelievably good. I used a homemade pie crust (but just one--I made a crust by sprinkling pecans on the top), used 5 Granny Smith apples (which I let simmer on the stove for about 20-30 minutes), and 2 tbsps of cinnamon instead of 1. This is one of the best apple pies I have ever had! You don't miss the sugar at all--it tastes perfectly sweet.

I really liked this recipe. I used bottled apple juice and boiled it down until double because I didn't have any frozen. I also used a whole wheat pie crust. I thought it tasted great. So did my husband. But unfortunately, he is diabetic and it was too rich for him.

This is my apple pie from now on. With "Best Ever Pie Crust", it's a hard combination to beat.

A wonderful "no sugar added" recipe. I've made this many times and it's always a hit with the family.

I think this pie is perfect. My girls made it for my dad who is diabetic. He loves it. Now we make two for him.
