CHOPPED APPLE PECAN PIE

1 unbaked pie shell
2 cups chopped apples
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp cornstarch
3 drops almond flavoring
1 cup sugar (Splenda Granular for diabetics)
pinch of salt
1/2 cup pecan pieces
butter
Caramel ice cream topping, optional

In a medium bowl, combine the sugar (or Splenda), apples, and salt; set aside for about 1 hour allowing the mixture to form a thick juice. Stir 3 to 4 times during this hour.

Into the apple mixture, mix in cinnamon, cornstarch, and almond flavoring. Stir to mix well then pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Cut thin pats of butter and scatter over the top of the mixture. Top the butter with the pecan pieces. Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes, reduce the temperature to 300 degrees and bake for another 45 minutes.

Remove from oven and drizzle with the caramel topping, if desired.
