Like sweet snacks? Then you’ll love these baked fruit slices made from sugary-sweet pears and crisp apples.

2 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
2 medium pear(s), Bosc, halved, cored
2 medium apple(s), Gala, Red Delicious or Granny Smith, halved, cored
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 cup McNeil Nutritionals SPLENDA (R) No Calorie Sweetener, or 2 tbsp

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
2. Using a very sharp knife, or slicing blade of a food processor, slice pears and apples into 1/8-inch-thick slices.
3. Mix together cinnamon and Splenda in a small bowl. Place fruit slices in a single layer on baking sheets and sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Bake, rotating baking sheets halfway through baking, until crisp and lightly browned, about 30 to 45 minutes. Yields 1 sliced pear and apple per serving.
