Apple Pie

Would it be Thanksgiving without apple pie? I like to fix it and I love apples, but for some reason I don't love apple pie. In the next week or two I'll be posting a few recipes you can make and serve for your Thanksgiving meal, or any other time you need a dish. BTW, I've used this recipe the last few Thanksgivings and nobody knows it is a healthier version. Shhhhh don't tell.
This comes from the WW site so if you want to go directly there you certainly can if you have e tools or the monthly pass.

Serves 8
4 points per serving

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
3 TB reduced calorie margarine, chilled and cut up
2 TB water, or more if necessary
4 medium apples, McIntosh,(or any other good baking apple), peeled and sliced thinly
1/4 cup sugar
1 TB cornstarch
1/2tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
5 TB all purpose flour
2 TB sugar
2 TB reduced calorie margarine, melted.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. To make crust, combine 1 cup flour and 2 tsp. of the sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add 3 TB of the chilled margarine and process (or use a pastry cutter, or fork) until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cold water, one TB at a time, and mix until manageable dough forms. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate. Pinch the edges to form a decorative rim; set aside.

3. To make the filling, combine apples, 1/4 cup of the sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat apples. Arrange apples in prepared pie crust.

4. To make topping, combine oats, 5 TB of flour, 2 TB sugar and melted margarine in a small bowl; sprinkle over apples.

5. Bake until apples are tender and crumb topping is golden brown, about 45-50 minutes.

Eat and enjoy- guilt free!!!
