Well, it's Autumn, although the weather today is warm and humid, and we are finally getting some rain.
Autumn means chrysanthemums and falling leaves and apples. Here is a picture of chrysanthemums that my better half picked up for me. You can see leaves on the ground behind it. Below is a recipe for an apple treat!
I hope to have more apple treats to come!
Hot Apple Mini-Skillet Dessert
Preheat the oven to 350.
Grease a 6" skillet, or spray with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine:
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced,
2 Tbs. sugar,
2 Tbs. gluten free baking mix (I used Pamela's),
1/2 tsp. cinnamon,
1/4 cup raisins,
1/4 cup dried cranberries, and
1/4 cup water (or better yet, some apple cider!).
Mix it up.
Spoon into the skillet. Cover with foil.
Bake 30 min. Remove foil.
Bake 10-20 min. more, until apples are tender when poked with a fork.
Remove from oven and cool slightly. Scoop into dessert bowls and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
