During the Thanksgiving, we prepared a very simple meal for the four of us. Here are some of the food that me and my daughter made. First up is a cheesy scallop potatoes with bacon bits. I made some lumpia and pancit and we had barbecued pork ribs.
For dessert, I tried one of the recipes I came across one of the blogs that I have visited. This is called baked apple and it's delicious! I put my own spin to the recipe.
You will need:
1 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated) I used NuNaturals)
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
3 cups peeled and chopped apples (preferably Fuji)
6 large square egg roll wrappers (found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket with the other Asian items)
18 sprays I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray (in other words, have a bottle handy!)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium unheated pot, combine Splenda/NuNaturals, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt with 1/2 cup cold water. Mix until the ingredients dissolve. Add apples and stir. Bring to medium-high heat on the stove and, stirring frequently, cook for 7 - 10 minutes, until apples are softened
3. Remove the pot from heat and very lightly mash the apples in the pot with a potato masher or a spatula (I did not mashed my apples, I left it as is). (You don't want applesauce. It should remain chunky.) Return to low heat on the stove, and cook for 1 - 2 additional minutes, stirring often, until the mixture is thick and gooey. Remove from heat and set aside. This is your pie filling.
4. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with foil and/or spraying it with nonstick spray. Set aside.
5. Lay two egg roll wrappers flat on a dry surface. Set out a small dish of water (I used egg whites). Dip your finger into the water/eggwhites, and run it along all of the wrapper edges. (Repeat as needed while preparing your pockets, as it will help seal them.)
6. Starting 1/2 inch from the bottom, place about 1/3 cup pie filling along the bottom half of each wrapper, leaving a 1/2-inch border on the sides
Repeat this process twice with remaining wrappers and filling, leaving you with 6 pie-lets.
As soon as I took out this baked apple from the oven, my daughter started eating lol. It was really good and she asks for this every time e have apples in the kitchen. Gladly, I always have eggroll wrappers in the freezer.
