The "Sugar-Free" bit of the title is misleading. This recipe uses 1/3 cup apple juice concentrate, which is just liquid sugar. The FDA states that "concentrated fruit juice" can't be used as a sweetener in a product labeled "no sugar added" for that very reason. If you want something healthier (but still not sugar-free since apples are also full of sugar), don't add apple juice, just increase the amount of splenda. Most other recipes I see use 1 cup of splenda instead.

I modified it a bit. I used 1/2 Granny Smith and 1/2 gala apples, and mixed all ingredients before putting in as filling for crust. Came out fantastic. My new go-to recipe!

This is my go-to apple pie recipe. I have only had rave reviews and I make this all the time. If you don't tell anyone that it's sugar free then they will never know. Add some Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla and you will satisfy everyone!

I made this pie for Thanksgiving since my husband has limited his sugar intake. I followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely delicious. He loved every bite. Sssh, don't tell anyone it is sugar free and they'll never know. I'm sure I will be making this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.

Making this for second time!! It was absolutely delicious! I used Pillsbury rolled pie crusts and half Granny Smith and half Fuji apples! Adding a little agave today!!

Using the apple juice is a great idea . When I use just sugar substitutes the pies seem dry. This would help solve that problem.

I made this pie for my familys Thanksgiving feast. No one in the group even knew that this was a diabetic apple pie. I did make one small flavor change. I used cranberry apple juice concentrate instead of just apple juice concentrate. It gave the pie a really nice added flavor. This pie was even great the next day.

My husband is an Apple Pie expert and he could not tell that it was not made with real sugar.
