Ingredients
1 refrigerated piecrust (such as Pillsbury refrigerated piecrust)
4 large baking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 cup sweetened, dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup Splenda sweetener
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Topping:

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Unfold piecrust and press out fold lines. Fit crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate according to package directions. Combine Apples, Cranberries, Lemon Zest, Splenda, 3 tablespoons flour, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Ginger in a large bowl; toss gently to mix well. Add applesauce and toss to coat. Spoon mixture into piecrust, piling up apples (they will shrink down with baking).

Sprinkle topping evenly over apple filling and press on to cover pie. Bake 45–50 minutes, or until apples are tender; cover edges of piecrust with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning if necessary. Allow pie to cool at least one hour before serving. This is a thick pie, so it makes a lot of servings.
