Apples and Pears, oh my!

Happy early Thanksgiving to all.

Ever thought about making healthier sweets at Thanksgiving while celebrating with family?

Let's give it a try this year!   Think about your favourite sweets you, ok tell the truth, over indulge on. There, you've thought it, ok now say it out loud. This year plan for making or eating healthier.  If you don't cook ask someone to make it for you.  Buy the ingredients and the freezer proof containers and tell them "happy baking".

Tonight I decided to make something sweet, but healthy.

3 Bartlett Pears  *option: Organic
1 large Honey Crisp Apple  *option: Organic

1 tsp light Brown Sugar
1 tbsp finely crushed Graham Crackers
1 tsp all purpose flour
1 tsp room temperature unsalted butter  *option: Organic
A hint of cinnamon  *option: Organic

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Slice Bartlett Pears in half, scoop out seeds
Slice Honey Crisp Apple into 1/8 slices
Place dry ingredients together in a bowl and stir in the butter

Arrange Bartlett Pears and slices of Honey Crisp Apples on a cookie sheet that is sprayed with cooking spray.

Sprinkle "topping" all over and fruit that has been placed on the prepped cookie sheet. Add a touch of cinnamon before baking.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and serve.  Option to serve with vanilla Greek Yogurt or eat as is.

Apples and Pears, oh my!
