1 package (0.3 ounce) sugar-free lemon gelatin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-3/4 cups water, divided
5 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
1 package (0.8 ounce) sugar-free cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (9 inches)
Whipped topping, optional
1. In a large saucepan, mix gelatin, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1-1/2 cups water. Add apples; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until apples are tender, about 5 minutes.
2. In a bowl, mix pudding mix and remaining water; stir into apple mixture. Cook until thickened, about 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in nuts. Transfer to crust.
3. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. If desired, serve with whipped topping.
We always have an abundance of apples in the fall, so I like to make this easy pie. My husband has diabetes, and this recipe fits into his diet...but everyone enjoys it.
