Warm cinnamon apples
Hey guys...

I went apple picking with my kids and was searching for a way to use them that would kind of mimic apple pie without all the fat and calories. I combined a few recipes with really good results.....

Serves 4

4 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of apple pie spice

In a medium frying pan or medium saucepan combine 1/2 cup of water and sliced apples. Cover with a lid and cook on high for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Apples should be tender. Drain apples, reserving the water they steamed in.

In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, vanilla and apple pie spice over medium low heat. Stir constantly until this thickens to a thin caramel sauce. Add a little water if necessary, should it accidently get too thick.

Add caramel sauce to the cooked apples, combining well. If necessary, add a little of the reserved water to the pan.

Serve warm with 1/2 cup of frozen vanilla yogurt or another favorite low-fat vanilla ice cream.

This dessert comes in at less than 200 calories and 3 grams of fat, depending on the ice cream used.

We loved it!

Mmmmmm. that sounds good. I make something very similar to use as a fruit topping on pancakes instead of syrup.

Oooh, that'd be great on plain yogurt for breakfast tomorrow!
