This ain't grandma's pie

Mmmm, apple pie. Who loves this american staple dessert? Yes, everyone! And who loves those extra calories each delicious slice brings? Oh right, no one. Well lucky for you I have come up with great alternative to prevent anyone from ever skipping dessert again.

You can use this recipe for more than just Fake Apple Pie. I've used these baked apples in plain oatmeal for a yummy breakfast, or added pears for a not-so-dull fruit salad. They keep in the fridge for about a week and re-heat in the microwave without losing texture, form or taste.

I love using this recipe during holidays, when I have family and friends coming over. I pre-make my baked apples the day before and just re-heat before serving. This will cut my cooking time, when I already have a ton of other things to cook. It also makes everyone feel better about not overloading the calories when we've already eaten a ton.

Low Calorie Options

Original Ingredient
Healthier Option
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
Ice Cream
1 cup Plain Yogurt / 1/2 cup Cool Whip


  • 6 Apples
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Cinnamon, to taste. Add more or less as you like it.
  • 2 TBSP Lemon juice
  • 4 TBSP Butter

Cooking Instructions

  1. Cut, core and peel apples. (Choose a variety of different apples, as if you were making a pie. I use two red, two green and two yellow.)
  2. Place apple slices in a bowl and mix other ingredients in.
  3. Place apples and sauce into a baking dish. Make sure there's only one level of apples and there are no apples on top of each other to allow even baking.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, baste every 10 minutes or so to prevent the apples from drying out. If apples are not FORK tender continue baking, basting and checking every 10 minutes.
  5. When apples are finished baking, allow to cool. You can stick them in the fridge in a plastic container with a lid. To serve, spoon a few apples and sauce in a bowl or on a plate. Place a scoop of ice-cream on top.
