Make and enjoy apple pie again with a modified version that uses the natural sweetness of apples. Try this apple pie recipe and you'll no longer have to worry about craving seconds.

Step 1

Lay one of the pastry crusts onto the counter and roll it completely flat with a rolling pin. Place the pie crust into the pie pan.

Step 2

Combine the apples, apple juice concentrate, cornstarch, cinnamon and butter into a pot and place on the stove on a medium-high heat.

Step 3

Stir the mixture constantly and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and continue stirring for 10 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.

Step 4

Pour the apples into the pie pan and cover with the second crust. Prick the top of the crust with a knife.

Step 5

Bake the pie at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
