I don't know why, but I bought some Granny Smith apples about 2 weeks ago. I guess they 'looked pretty'!!!! I'm glad I did because I needed to do some Kitchen Therapy the other day. I made this Thursday.....and would have shared with my Friday WW meeting, but....... <sigh>. Anyway, apple season is almost here.....but make this now!!!
Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™
1/3 cup PLUS 2 TBSP Splenda granulated
1 stick (8 TBSP) light butter
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitue
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp fat-free milk
1/4 tsp salt
3 or 4 large Granny Smith apples
Let the egg substitute and butter come to room temperature.
Peel and finely slice the apples.
Preheat oven to 350º. Spray or butter (what used to be called 'grease') an 11” tart pan.
Beat 1/3 cup Splenda with the egg substitute and 1/3 cup butter. Add flour, baking powder, milk and salt. Pour mixture into the tart pan and cover with the sliced apples.
Melt remaining butter and Splenda in the microwave. Using a pastry brush, cover the apples with the melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake 40 minutes.
You can eat this 'as is' or with some fat-free whipped topping.
MY SPIN: The next time I make this, I'll bake it @35 minutes OR use a 9” tart pan. I will definitely “line” the inside perimeter of the pan with apples and then arrange them “pretty” (like in the pictures). I used 3 apples this time.....next time it will be 4.
