Ingredients

Directions

Topping:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Unfold piecrust and press out fold lines. Fit crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate according to package directions. Combine apples, cranberries, lemon zest, 1/2 cup Splenda, 3 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in a large bowl; toss gently to mix well. Add applesauce and toss to coat. Spoon mixture into piecrust, piling up apples (they will shrink down with baking).

In a separate bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup Splenda, light-brown sugar, and margarine. Mix by mashing with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over apple filling and press on to cover pie. Bake 45–50 minutes, or until apples are tender; cover edges of piecrust with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning if necessary. Allow pie to cool at least one hour before serving. This is a thick pie, so it makes a lot of servings.

Yield: 12 servings. Serving size: 1/12 of pie.
