Apple Pie Sundae

We interrupt the romance to bring you another recipe we love around here. In fact, we made this just this last weeked when guests were visiting. We doubled this recipe; good thing, because we heard lots of "mmm-mmm's" and spoons scraping bowls. It's a keeper.

(Bonus: it makes your house smell like homemade apple pie!)

Apple Pie Sundae (5 points per serving)

1 tablespoon butter
1 medium Braeburn apple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks.
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
2 cups vanilla fat free ice cream
4 teaspoon fat free caramel topping
1/4 cup low-fat granola

1. Melt butter in a large non-stick skillet. Add apple, brown sugar and apple-pie spice; cook 7 minutes or until apple is tender.

2. Spoon ice cream into bowls. Spoon warm apple mixture over ice cream; top with caramel, and sprinkle with granola.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1/2 c ice cream, 1/4 cup apple mixture, 1 t caramel topping, 1T granola.)

Bon Appetit!

can you recommend a good low-fat granola?

The best bet for a low fat granola is to check the calorie count on the side of the box or bag. It varies, wildly, in some cases. For this last time we made it, we used a store brand (Albertsons)cereal called "Low Fat Granola with Almonds" (230 cal count). You are just using it as a sprinkle on top, so don't stress too much.

Holy smokes this looks so yummy! I'm browsing through your blog chalk full of fun and inspiring ideas. It's eye candy and this apple sundae is going on my menu this week. We just went apple picking on Saturday and so we've got apples a plenty for yummy treats just like this. Thanks for sharing!
