Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Apple Tart


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!!!
 

APPLE TART
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
cinnamon
 

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.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
 
Later!
Loving Life(time)!
