I decided to make a somewhat healthy recipe for Thanksgiving. Russell and I have been eating healthier these days so I wanted to have a healthier option.
I typically don’t follow a recipe completely!
Here it is:
1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet
8 cups peeled and sliced Fuji apples (about 8 medium apples)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
4 sheets (16 crackers) low-fat graham crackers, finely crushed
1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
2 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9″ X 13″ baking pan with non-stick spray. Place dough in the pan, and stretch into a large rectangle of even thickness, covering the bottom of the pan. Pierce several times with a fork.
In a medium bowl, combine remaining pie ingredients. Add mixture to the large bowl, and toss to coat. Evenly spoon apple mixture onto the dough sheet. Cover the pan with foil, and bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another medium bowl, combine streusel ingredients. Mash and stir until well mixed and crumbly.
Remove foil. Evenly sprinkle streusel over the apple mixture.
Bake until apples are soft, about 30 more minutes. (Keep an eye on the crust — it will burn if cooked too long.)
Let pie cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Slice and serve!
