By Kimberley Eggleston, About.com Guide to Low Calorie Cooking Limiting the sugar helps to make this apple pie a little healthier. We prefer this healthy apple pie warm, with a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt or ice cream. Prep Time: 45 min; Cook Time: 50 min

Recipe Ingredients for Healthy Apple Pie

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, chilled
3 tbsp ice water
2 cups granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 cups apples (Gala), peeled, cored and sliced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp butter

Recipe Directions for Healthy Apple Pie

  1. Make the crust: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in the chilled butter, using two knives or a pastry blender. Sprinkle the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time into the mixture, mixing with a fork after each addition. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Roll the dough into an 11-inch circle between two sheet of plastic wrap coated with cooking spray. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 425F.

  3. Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap from the pie dough. Turn the dough over into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, and remove the remaining layer of plastic wrap. Press the dough into the pie plate, and flute the edges, using your fingers.

  4. Make the filling: Toss the apples together with the lemon juice in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining sugars and flour. Combine this sugar mixture with the apples, and then pour the apples into the pie crust. Use a knife to cut the remaining butter into small pieces, and distribute the butter pieces over the top of the pie.

  5. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes, then turn the heat down to 350F and bake an additional 30 minutes.
