Sugar Free Apple Pie

•2 (9 inch) pie shell
•3 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
•1 (12 fluid ounce) can unsweetened apple juice concentrate, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl whisk together cornstarch, cinnamon, and 1/3 cup of the apple juice concentrate. Set aside.
In a large saucepan simmer apples with remaining apple juice concentrate until apples are tender, about 10 minutes.
Stir in cornstarch mixture and continue to simmer until thickened. Remove from heat.
Spoon apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Cover with top crust. Seal and flute edges. Cut steam vents in top.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Sugar-Free Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce


•1 (20 ounce) loaf French bread
•1 quart milk
•2cups granular sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)
•2tablespoons vanilla
•3 tablespoons margarine, melted
•1 cup raisins
•1cup granular sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)
•1 egg
•1/2 cup margarine, melted
•1/4 cup whiskey, or to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Break bread into pieces, and place into a large bowl. Pour milk over bread, and crush with your hands until well blended.
Stir in 3 eggs, 2 cups sweetener, vanilla, 3 tablespoons margarine, and raisins until evenly mixed. Transfer to the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until very firm.

To make the sauce: In a medium bowl, cream together 1 cup sweetener and 1 egg until smooth.
Gradually mix in the melted margarine, and continue stirring to dissolve sweetener.
If the sauce is difficult to blend, it may be heated gently, but be careful not to curdle the egg. Gradually stir in whiskey which should make the sauce creamy smooth.

To serve: Allow pudding to cool completely, then cut into cubes, and place into individual heat-proof serving dishes. Pour sauce over, and heat under the broiler until golden, about 3 minutes.
