Happy Fall,Ya'll! As I was browsing through the recipes on the Midwest Dairy website, I found a recipe just made for filling the kitchen with the smell of fall...Baked Apples with Cinnamon Yogurt Topping.
Just reading the recipe brought back memories of my childhood when my Mother would bake apples in the fall or winter. The sweet smell of cinnamon and apples would fill the house. I'm ready to make some fall memories with a little dairy...how about you?
4 Granny smith or Gala Apples with or without skin
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice or apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
For Baked Apples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Core and thinly slice apples. Place apples in a medium bowl and toss with apple juice. Mix brown sugar, cornstarch,cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in small bowl. Sprinkle over apples and stir gently until apples are coated.
Pour apples into prepared baking dish. Bake 40 minutes or until apples are slightly browned at edges and sauce is bubbling.
For Yogurt Topping
2 1/2 cups low-fat plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Line a colander with several paper towels and place over a bowl to catch drips. Pour yogurt into colander and allow to drain refrigerated about 30 minutes. Spoon yogurt into a small bowl and stir in honey and cinnamon.
For each serving, top 1/4 of the warm apples with 1/4 of the yogurt topping.
