The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes

A cookbook for people with Diabetes

From Chapter 12: Desserts


Refrigerated folded pie crusts make pies and tarts simple, and are more tender and flexible than frozen pie crusts. Dough hearts add a pretty decorative touch, but feel free to use any other shape cookie cutter, such as leaves, apples, or stars, for variety.


1 tart (8 servings)

  • 1 refrigerated fill-and-bake pie crust (7 to 7 1/2 ounces)
  • 3 large Granny Smith apples (about 1 1/2 pounds total), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour half-and-half, or 1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Put the pie crust into a 9-inch-diameter tart pan with a removable bottom; press the crust against the fluted edge and trim off any pastry that extends over the top.
  3. Roll the trimmed dough into a ball; flatten to 1/4 inch and cut 2 or 3 shapes with a cookie cutter.
  4. Prick the tart shell in several places with the tines of a fork.
  5. Put the sliced apples in a large bowl; drizzle them with lemon juice and toss to mix.
  6. In a small bowl, blend the brown sugar, sour half-and-half, tapioca, and cinnamon.
  7. Fold the brown sugar mixture into the apples until all the fruit is coated.
  8. Spoon the apples into the tart shell; arrange the dough shapes on top of the apples.
  9. Sprinkle granulated sugar over the top.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
  11. Cut in 8 equal slices.
  12. Serve hot or at room temperature.
