Who doesn’t love apple pie…but we hate what the fattening crust does to our waist line…
Here’s a way to get the sweet taste of pie without those nasty calories! This recipe is perfect for those chilly fall nights ahead!
Crock-Pot Baked Apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons trans-fat free margarine
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 Gala or Macintosh apples, cored
1/2 cup apple juice or apple cider
2 tablespoons orange liquor (optional)
Preheat a large crock-pot on high heat and preset it for 3 hours. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, walnuts, margarine, and cinnamon. Fill the apples with the filling and place them in the crock-pot. Pour in the apple juice or cider and the liquor, if using. Cover and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours on high heat until the apples are soft and begin to collapse. Yields 6 servings.
If you have some apples left over, use them to bring some fall color to your home…
