The Perfect Portion

I am all about individual desserts, Cupcakes vs. a whole cake and single serving pies vs. a whole pie.  You eat it, it's gone, and there is no temptation calling you to the kitchen later that night.  My boys requested something with apples this week, so this is what I came up with.

Individual Apple Pies

  • 5-7 whole apples, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp of apple pie seasoning (nutmeg and cinnamon)
  • 2 tsp flour (for thickening)
  • 1 Tsp of Butter
Saute apples in butter, add brown sugar, lemon juice, seasoning and flour.  Cook at a low temp until apples are soft.  I used single serving puffed pastries (bake according to directions on package) while the pastry is still hot  put in your filling. Top with a dollop of low fat or fat free whipped cream.
