Mealtime Makeovers...Apples over ice cream? PDF Print E-mail

On a cold winter day I almost always think of a warm peach pie or apple cobbler. Especially close to Thanksgiving when those tasty treats are just a few days away. So I sat and wondered why I did not know of any quick substitutes. Then the search began.

Summer or winter, this treat fits in anywhere. Eat it alone, wrapped in a tortilla, or over a scoop of vanilla ice cream, Yummy! It’s so easy and it must be healthy if it has apples in it right?

If you like, add a little granola on top and instantly you have an apple cobbler replica, and a warm, delicious dessert.


Country Style Skillet Apples
