Pie. With Apples. And Raisins. It’s sweet and fruity and all the things a pie should be. The sour cream mixed in before cooking adds a nice creamy texture to the apples. Enjoy !

2 t lemon juice
¼ c dark raisins

This one gets prepped and then put in the refrigerator for a couple hours and then baked for about an hour. I find it makes an equally good breakfast as it does a dessert ! This one even had my non-breakfast eating daughter asking, “can I have some of that?” The aroma of cinnamon and apples gets ya every time !

1/3 c Splenda
1 c Egg beaters
2/3 c skim milk
3/4 t maple flavor (like vanilla extract, but maple flavored instead)
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread
2 c apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 c low fat cream cheese
1 T Splenda
2 T cinnamon
Spray an 8×8 pan with Pam. Blend 1/3 c Splenda, eggs, milk and maple in a bowl. Tear the bread into 2 inch pieces and mix with apples and then stir into the egg mix being sure all the bread soaks up some of the liquid then turn it all into the prepared pan. Cut cream cheese into 10 pieces and place on top of bread and apples. Blend 1 T Splenda and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top the cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake 50-60 minutes or until browned.
These are great apple pockets – and they are really so simple to make; it only takes about 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes in the oven until you’re eating hot apple pockets !

2 baking apples (a sweet Gala or McIntosh apple as opposed to a tart Granny Smith, etc.)
2 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 package (7.5 oz.) biscuit dough – 10 biscuits (in the refrigerator section of your market – I use store brand)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and grate apples and place in a bowl (use the same type of grater you would use to grate cheddar cheese). In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Stir 3/4 of the sugar mix in with the apples. Roll each biscuit to a 5 inch circle with a rolling pin (or press with the bottom of a clean skillet or dish). You may want to flour the biscuit a little so the rolling pin or dish won’t stick to it.
Take a look at my video for quick instructions on how to do this:
Place equal portions of apple mix in each round, fold the circles over in half and pinch the edges well to seal. I actually press around the edge with a fork so it is well-sealed a little decorative. Place pockets on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake 20 minutes.
This is so low cal on its own that there’s plenty of room to add a nice scoop of light vanilla ice cream 🙂

3 medium apples, cored and sliced thin
1 t cinnamon
2 T sugar
2 T flour
1 c quick oats
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 c brown sugar
2 T margarine
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix first four ingredients and place into a 9 inch square baking dish. In a small bowl mix topping ingredients and sprinkle over the apples. Bake until apples are soft, about 30 minutes.
Baked apples slow cooked not only taste great, but they make the whole house smell wonderful while they cook 🙂 This recipe is simple to do, yet has an elegant presentation. Though the recipe does not call for it, try adding some cinnamon or nutmeg for a different flavor combo.
145 calories per serving
2 large sized apples, cut in half and cored
4 t margarine cut in small pieces
1/2 c orange juice
1 T cider vinegar
1/4 c evaporated milk or half and half
2 T maple syrup
Please apples skin side down in a slow cooker. Place a dot of margarine on each. Pour juice and vinegar mix over the top and cook on high 2-3 hours or until soft. Remove apples to a plate and pour the juice in a pan. Bring juice to a boil and cook on high 5 minutes to reduce to a syrup.
Whip milk and maple syrup in an ice cold bowl for 3 minutes. Top each apple piece with 1/4 of the cream and drizzle with the fruit syrup.
Alternately, skip the milk and just add some maple syrup over the top of the apples for another version of a great dessert for a cold night.
