  Categories: Cakes, Low-cal
       Yield: 8 Servings
  
       1 c  Biscuit mix
       3 tb Diet margarine, plus 1 tsp
            -divided
      20 oz Unsweetened pie-slicd apples
            -undrained
       6 tb Granulated sugar substitute
            -divided (see note)
         pn Lemon or orange peel; grated
            -(optional)
     1/4 ts Cinnamon
       2 tb Confectioners' sugar (opt.)
  
   (NOTE: Use the type of sugar substitute than can be used spoon-for-spoon in
   place of sugar--examples: Sprinkle Sweet or Sugar Twin--not concentrated
   artificial sweeteners such as those found in single-serving packets.
   
   Spray a 9-inch glass pie pan with cooking spray. Combine biscuit mix with
   the 3 tablespoons diet margarine in blender or food processor, using the
   steel blade. Process until blended to fine crumbs (mixture will not form a
   batter; it will have the consistency of heavy flour). Sprinkle half the
   flour mixture on the bottom of the pie pan. Spoon half the apples on top of
   the flour mixture. Sprinkle on 4 tablespoons of the sugar substitute. Spoon
   on the remaining apples, including any juice in the can. Sprinkle on the
   grated peel, if desired.
   
   Add the cinnamon and the remaining 1 teaspoon diet margarine to the
   remaining flour mixture and process into crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly
   over the apples. Place on the bottom rack of a preheated 400 oven and bake
   20 minutes, just until crumbs are lightly browned (don't overbake or sugar
   substitute will lose its sweetness). Remove from oven and allow to cool
   completely.
   
   Stir remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar substitute with
   confectioners' sugar, if desired, until blended; sprinkle over the top of
   the crumbs. Or omit confectioners' sugar and simply sprinkle the top of the
   cooled pie with sugar-free sweetener.

   WITH FRUCTOSE: If you prefer, granulated fructose (alwo known as fruit
   sugar), may be used instead of sugar-free sweetener. Substitute 1 teaspoon
   lemon juice for the lemon peel. {150 calories per serving}
   
   WITH OTHER CANNED FRUITS: Three cups canned unsweetened sliced peaches,
   diced pears, pineapple tidbits, fruit cocktail, or other juice-packed
   fruits may be substitute for the apples. If other fruits are used, drain
   them and reserve 1/2 cup of the juice to pour over the fruit before adding
   the final topping of crumbs.
