Apple Pie is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes wonderful and mine is gluten free I frequently bake with Truvia. Apple pie is one of my favorites. I have changed the recipe to make it celiac and gluten free friendly but otherwise followed the rest of the instructions and no one can that it doesn't have sugar or wheat. Even made mini pies for my son's classmates and they liked this pie as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ! While I'm not a big fan of apple pie (rather eat them raw), this one changed my mind and it's my favorite now especially with the reduced sugar content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade your recipe! I've been cooking pies for years, and when I changed it up to this recipe, all my family was asking what I did to make it better. While a master chef never reveals their secrets, I can tell them that Truvia makes it work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Apple Pie Flavor I am a huge apple pie fan and Truvia makes this one amazing! Since having bariatric surgery I live a sugar-free lifestyle and Truvia makes that so easy. This apple pie is full of flavor and still tastes sweet and homemade without all of the guilt! I love that Truvia does not change the texture of the pie either and when I made this one, even the non-believers in my house were amazed at how good it was. I didn't tell them til after they finished it and were applauding my amazing dessert , that it was made with Truvia! I saw some shocked faces and heard a few " No way's" . In my home I will use Truvia in all of my baking, cooking and beverages!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oustanding taste This apple pie recipe is a winner. I never divulge ingredients until someone asks, so no one is the wiser that this dessert is a healthier version of the old standby. The two changes I made were the type of apples, I use a combo of Rome and Granny Smith and I add a touch of cinnamon to the filling

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deliciously lower calorie~ I would only add some cinnamon to this recipe.....otherwise it is wonderful!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even fooled my friends!! I have made this pie several times now. I have served it to company, as well as taken it to various functions. Sometimes when you tell people that you have used a sweetener, they turn up their noses at "that diet food!" After the pie has been devoured that's when I let them know and the look on some of their faces is priceless! I have since shared this recipe with many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like with sugar only better for you! I have been using Truvia regularly and have used them to substitute sugar since I have type 2 Diabetes. I have found my recipes taste great and nobody misses the real sugar in it. I totally recommend the switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic All American Pie The only thing I would add to this recipe is to use Jonagold Apples and DON'T slice them too small. Jonagold apples hold up well to baking if you don't slice them too small. The other thing I Always add to an apple pie recipe is both a touch of cinnamon as well as a Tablespoon of Brandy (or rum extract if you prefer) as this adds just the right amount of spark to an apple pie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best apple pie imaginable I made this recipe for thanksgiving. Since then I am constantly asked if I will be making this famous pie. I have now made 23 pies for family and friends the sweetness of the truvia is a perfect match for these apples

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavors I tried this recipe and was pleasantly surprised. I have never made an apple pie that had the sugars and butter melted and mixed with the apples. Now I will not make it any other way. So simple and easy to do. The pie turned out perfectly and the apple mixture tasted just like baked apples instead of regular pie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apple pie from truvia tastes AWESOME SAUCEUME I just want to make an important note for those wanting to serve diabetics: this is reduced sugar, not sugar free, as you can see in the Nutrition Facts. (apples naturally contain sugar) Also, white flour is readily converted to sugar in the body, with a Glycemic Index of 85, higher than that of the apple's 40 and even the table sugar . If you are looking to make this diabetic friendly, try replacing the flour with almond meal and soy flour , and using Truvia as the sweetener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple steps I tried this recipe and i thought the steps were simple to follow. Everything turned out great. My family loved the taste of it and could not tell I used truvia over the regular sugar. My dad is diabetic so he was loving it and more when I told him I made it with truvia. I rate this recipe 5 stars and will continue to use it in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Apple Pie I really liked this recipe and no one knew that I had used truvia sugars instead of regular sugar. They liked it. I will keep making the pies this way and I'm going to try making some other pies with the truvia sweetener.
