Prep: 15 minutes      Cook: 25 minutes      Cool: 20 minutes     MAKES 6 SERVINGS

Ingredients:

2 tsp. cornstarch
3 cups peeled and chopped Fuji or Gala apples (about 3 apples)
2 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
6 large square egg roll wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the market)
Optional topping: powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. In a medium nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/2 cup water. Stir to dissolve.
  2. Add apples, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir well.
  3. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until apples have slightly softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 8 – 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a medium bowl. Let cool slightly, about 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  6. Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute 1/6th of apple mixture (about 1/3 cup) on the bottom half of the wrapper.
  7. Moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the top half over the mixture so the top edge meets the bottom. Seal edges by pressing firmly with the prongs of a fork.
  8. Place on the baking sheet, and repeat to make 5 more pie pockets.
  9. Spray with nonstick spray. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Tasty Tuesday: Apple Pie Bites

I don’t like cold weather since I am always cold BUT I do love the Fall.  WHY? Because I can snuggle inside baking and cooking.  I used to do it a lot when Belinda was little BUT I do enjoy it especially for the holidays.   I was going through the recipes trying to decide what to make for Thanksgiving – I get to bring dessert.

I came across this recipe from Blond Cook.  A quick and easy dessert.  I mean who wouldn’t want an awesome dessert in less than 30 minutes.  The best part is it can be made Weight Watcher friendly with just a minor change or two. I am also trying to figure out how to make it gluten free so if you have any suggestions, I would love them!

PREP TIME: 15 minutes.     COOK TIME: 12 minutes.     Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Original crescent rolls or low fat
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 8 (1/2-inch) slices or fried canned apples
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup pecans (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and apple pie spice. Set aside.
  • Melt butter and toss apple slices in butter.  Set aside.
  • Arrange crescent roll triangles on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Evenly distribute brown sugar mixture onto each triangle.
  • Sprinkle each triangle evenly with the chopped pecans.
  • Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle.
  • Wrap crescent roll dough around each apple.
  • Brush each crescent roll with remaining butter.
  • Sprinkle lightly with additional apple pie spice.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes,
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving

Easy, right???  Having company or heading to a family gathering?  Make a double batch so everyone has some to take home.  Worried how you will carry them to the gathering?  Why not do it in style with Thirty One’s Perfect Party Set

Perfect party

Not only can you carry these awesome Apple Pie Bites but you can also bring a second dish in a fun, fashionable thermal. YES, this thermal will hold up to TWO 9×13 pans in one water resistant tote.  It has two handles with a handle grip.  Did I mention it can be personalized so no one walks off with it and if they do, everyone will know it is yours!

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
