Delicious Apple Pie Recipes for Diabetics and Others
Fall is just around the corner and that means lots of apples just begging to be turned into pies. This fall also offers our United States Presidential Election and what is more American than apple pie? Following are a couple of very tasty apple pie recipes that are perfect for diabetics as well as for anyone. Give them a try and enjoy a delicious piece of apple pie today.

Old-Fashioned Classic Apple Pie

6 cups thinly sliced, peeled, tart cooking apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup Splenda granular

2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Slice apples into a large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Add sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to apples; mix together well. Mix apples again with a large spoon then turn into pastry lined pie pan. Dot the surface with the butter or margarine. Place top pastry over pie and seal the edges well. Cut steam vents in center of the top crust or poke several times with a fork. Bake pie in a 425 degree oven for 45 – 55 minutes or until crust turns a golden brown and the filling starts to bubble up through the vents.

NO SUGAR ADDED APPLE PIE

1/3 cup frozen apple juice concentrate

8 tsp Splenda granular

2 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp ground cinnamon

8 cups thinly sliced baking apples, peeled

1 tbsp butter

Pastryfor a 9-inch double crust pie

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, combine juice, Splenda, cornstarch and cinnamon. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry, allowing pastry to overlap sides. Place apple slices over bottom pastry. Pour the juice mixture evenly over the apple slices. Dot with the butter. Top with pastry. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut a slit in center of crust for venting during baking. Bake at 375 degreesfor 35 minutes. Increase oven tiemperature to 400 degrees and bake 15-20 minutes longer until pie is bubbly and crust is a golden brown.

This is a good pastry crust recipe suitable for use with either of these pie recipes.

Pastry for a double-crust 9-inch pie:

2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup lard or solid vegetable shortening
5 to 7 tbsp ice water

In a large bowl, stir flour and salt together until blended. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut lard or shortening into flour mixture until the mixture becomes mealy.

Mix in ice water a little at a time with a fork, stirring until the mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball. Finish shaping dough into a ball with your hands, cut in half with a knife to form two balls for the top and the bottom of the pan. On a lightly floured board, flatten one ball of dough and roll with a lightly floured rolling pin from center to edge in a circular fashion, making a 12-inch circle. Place pastry into a 9-inch pie pan, fitting gently and trimming off excess dough with sharp knife or scissors. Fill or bake according to recipe. Roll out remaining dough in the same manner to use as a top crust.

Enjoy!

      I would marinade the steak ovenight (you can use garlic salt for seasoning or any store bo ught steak rub). Marinades make the meat much better and tender than just cooking dry. steak sauce like A1 is good and having a variety of salad dressings is a good idea

    i want to lose weight by 22nd may. any tips and exercises, diet plan inside?
    On the 22nd of May ,I’m hosting a party.
    I have set this as my weight loss date because I would love everyone to see me skinny and happy, and as the host everyone looks at you to look good, also I think this is a sensible amount of time I’ve got to lose some?

    My diet plan is:
    Monday
    no breakfast , no lunch, dinner of tuna and cheese pasta with salad

    Tuesday
    no breakfast, no lunch, dinner of warm (natural breast) chicken sandwich.

    Wednesday
    no breakfast, no lunch, dinner of 2 boiled eggs,some bacon and some salad.

    Thursday
    no breakfast (a few mints in the morning), 1/4 of a sandwich with corned beef (1 small quarter square), dinner of pasta bolognaise but the packet says its meant for a snack

    Friday:
    no breakfast, 500ml coke zero for lunch, dinner of half a magerita pizza :/ (bad choice) and salad which i didnt eat much of.
    its friday night and i want to eat something but i won’t, ill stick to this diet.

    i have been eating tea at the same regular time of about 7pm
    i do not eat after dinner or before bed at all
    i do exercise :
    Situps, lots of starjumps,dancing leg lifts, step ups, jogging on the spot, whatever takes my fancy really
    i usually do it before and after tea because i feel a bit bloated after dinner so i need some exercise to work it off
    I also walk 2 miles every week day

    Weekends could be tricky… tend to overeat..
    going to stick to no breakfast on saturday preferably no lunch and a healthy dinner like salad and ham or something, sunday will have no breakfast and lunch of a small cob sandwich and then dinner of like fish or something depends.

    VERY LONG :) SORRY. SO BY MAY 22ND HOW MUCH WEIGHT DO YOU THINK I WILL HAVE LOST?
    I have no idea how much i weigh i am average size bit of flab on the belly and thigh, skinny legs + arms. 5 ft 4 or something?
    and i wont be snacking at night or throughout the day for that matter
    i do tend to have a bit of diet coke now and again, but i think this is my treat as i don’t have other treats.

    Sounds like another Republican idiot. You already know if Obama had said something like that about Palin the right would have called him a racist, like they did about Rev. Wright, but they don’t play the race card only Democrats do that. The reason why they get away with it is because they hide behind their right to freedom of speech and they openly admit that they are not journalist which means they don’t have to accurately report the news. They are just concerned citizens voicing their opinion.
