Simple Summer Apple Dessert

In browsing my sisters Youtube channel, I found a video of Erica, two years ago, making our favorite apple dessert.  The video is only 2 minutes long, and it shows you how easy this treat is.  I realized I never posted the recipe for this, even though it’s something I make all the time.  I’m adding this to our new category- Kids in the Kitchen, but even if your kids don’t make it themselves, it’s good to realize how fast and easy it is for mom’s to make for kids when they are short on time, but don’t want to hand their kids a bag of cookies!

Apples are a great part of a healthy dessert! Not only are the sugars naturally sweet, but they are also packaged with vital vitamins and minerals! It’s a win- win for kids and parents for sure!

Hi, I don’t have a microwave, if I did this in the oven what temp would I use and for how long? Thanks.

Ethan says:

Sounds like a great idea for cooking with kids! Thanks for sharing! I’d like to invite you to our party, Fantastic Thursday. http://www.fivelittlechefs.com Hope to see you there!

Raj says:

Do you have to add sugar

Amy says:

Of course not! In fact, we do it all the time without the brown sugar!!

Amy says:

Good question Amy- I would bake it at 400 degrees, for about 15 minutes- just keep checking by poking the apples with a knife until they are tender, and the knife slides out easily.
Good luck!

Hey there! I simply would like to offer you a huge thumbs up for your great
information you’ve got here on this post. I am returning to your blog for more soon.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic
but I had to ask!
