Happy 4th of July and No Bake All-American Apple Pie

Happy 4th of July, y'all! Our family is celebrating our tradition of the 4th at the family beach house on Long Beach Island.

This is one of my most requested recipes for the 4th of July holiday. It is a perfect lightened-up, no oven needed treat for this hot weather and it is diabetic-friendly. 

"Angela's No-Bake Amazing Apple Pie” 

5 medium apples, peeled and sliced

1-3/4 cups water

1 package (4-serving size) sugar-free Jell-O lemon gelatin 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 package (4-serving size) sugar-free Jell-O cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix

1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (8 inch) 

Optional: 1 cup Cool-Whip Lite whipped topping, thawed

In a large saucepan, combine sliced apples, 1 1/2 cups water, gelatin, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 4-6 minutes or until apples are tender. Combine dry pudding mix and remaining ¼ cup water. Stir into apple mixture. Cook for 2 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat. Pour into crust. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish each slice, if desired, with heaping tablespoon of whipped topping. Enjoy!
