No-Bake Apple Pie

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. —Shirley Vredenburg, Ossineke, Michigan

    This pie was very good. I think I will eliminate nutmeg next time a little too overpowering for me. The texture was perfect.

    For those of you finding it difficult to find the cooked sugar free pudding go to Amazon. It comes in a 4 pack. When placing an Amazon order I just add this to stock up.

    This pie is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly. S-F cooked pie filling is hard to find but I had an extra on hand. I will cut the apples in smaller pieces next time. I served it with sugar-free whipped topping. Delicious!Volunteer Field Editor

    I might be the only one; but am always wondering why folks do not "measure" apples, bananas, etc. instead of giving a number/size count! Can anyone help me out with this? After lots of "practice" I have sort of got mashed bananas down -- 2-3 medium ripe is /- a cup; but some days that's not good either! So, I guess I will "play" with this one too! Sorry, if I appear to be ranting...

    We are not watching our sugar so I use the regular jello & pudding mix. It's great. I've made it twice now, we love it.

    We cut back on the nutmeg (not my favorite) and increased the pudding to 2 packages. Was delicious and will be permanent in our recipe file.

    For a no bake pie, this was pretty tasty.

    This pie is awesome! I didn't put in the nuts, but did everything is by the recipe. My mom even asked me for the recipe for her Christmas parties. Will definitely make again.

    Although I live in Alberta, I often shop in Montana. Can "oreotookie" or someone else tell me which grocery store carries the sugar-free pudding? I can't find it around here.Joanne in Alberta
