4.0 out of 5 stars For the Apple Pie Alone, August 8, 2006
This review is from: Fruit-Sweet and Sugar-Free: Prize-Winning Pies, Cakes, Pastries, Muffins, and Breads from the Ranch Kitchen Bakery (Paperback)
For the Apple Pie alone I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reducing the amount of refined sugar in their diet. Her recipe is one of the best I have tried and her pie crust was better than many I have tried.

Others have complained that fruit sweetener was expensive and hard to come by. I will admit it is more expensive than sugar, but I have never had trouble finding it and given that it is concentrated you use less of it than you would refined sugar; typically about half as much.

The only reason I did not give this book a 5 star rating is because I would have liked it better if the author had included other sweetener alternatives because I don't find fruit sweetener compatible with all flavors. For instance it works well in fruit desserts, but I did not care for it as a sweetener for pumpkin pie; for that I would prefer something like brown rice syrup.

Overall though the book is very well written, the instructions are very detailed and the author covers a wide range of desserts. It remains one of my favorites.
