Absolutely amazing. Flakey sweet crust. Even family members who usually don’t go for pie are loving it!

I only used one cream cheese package to make it lower fat, and it turned out well.

This is a delicious recipe, but the apples do not get crisp. Are they supposed to? Your picture shows the apples sort of standing up where I had mine laying down flat. It was difficult to cut thru the apples to create a serving piece. Perhaps I sliced my apples too thin by using a mandoline slicer? Please help solve this problem so I can continue using this recipe.

Hi Norma, thanks for your question! In this photo, the apples are sliced a bit thicker, and layered on top of each other in a way that makes them look like they are standing up straighter. It will still taste delicious if the apples are flat! Happy baking!

I used almond flour rather than wheat flour and Splenda rather than sugar in the crust. Worked great. I did use real sugar for the topping though.
