A Lighter Apple Pie

, A Lighter Apple PieIf you and your family love apple pie on Thanksgiving, try a healthy new spin on this holiday favorite with our Health-e-Recipe for Square Apple Pie.

The pieces may be square, but we’ve cut corners on calories by using less high-fat pastry and sugar. Instead, our recipe is a lighter treat that’s perfect for following a heavy meal and it’s loaded with fresh apples.

All apples provide cancer-preventive flavonoid phytochemicals and fiber, especially when you leave the peel on. They also contain the antioxidant vitamin C and pectin, a substance that may help lower cholesterol. The best apples for baking are tarts ones like green Granny Smith, Fuji, Cortland, Northern Spy or Winesap.

If you’re inclined to add whipped or ice cream to your pie, why not serve a sugarless, fat-free version or a dollop of low-fat vanilla yogurt, frozen or not.
