Apple Pie is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from too much sugar! Pie crust needs NO sugar of any type, adding sugar to the crust just adds needless clories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fooled My Husband!! I made this pie with Granny Smith apples, and it was delicious! We are trying to reduce sugar in my household, but my husband is leery of any sweeteners. He didn't notice any difference until after I told him I used Trivia!
