Upside-Down Apple Pie


  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 8 cups peeled and thinly sliced Fuji or Gala apples (about 6 apples)
  • 2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 sheets (8 crackers) cinnamon graham crackers, finely crushed
  • Optional topping: natural light whipped topping


Spray a 9″ deep-dish pie pan with nonstick spray.

In a large nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1 1/2 cups cold water, and stir to dissolve. Add all remaining ingredients except graham crackers. Mix well.

Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until apples have softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 12 – 15 minutes.

Carefully transfer filling to the pie pan, and smooth out the surface with the back of a spoon.

Let cool completely, about 1 hour.

Refrigerate until chilled and set, at least 4 hours.

Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed graham crackers.
