Baked Apple #Mini Apple Pocket

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!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 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.
Bake in the oven for 15 - 18 minutes, until edges begin to brown.
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.
