Dear Apple Pie Dip,

9.20.2012

Adam had a LOT of homework the other night. And my brother and his family invited us out for dinner. Adam said, "You go, I will do homework..." And I thought... that was a good idea, because I just distract him anyway constantly asking if he is done yet?! So we went to Costco, got him some food, unloaded the car, and I headed to family. It was a great dinner of yummmmy soup (which I love in the fall) followed by a night of helping get a treat ready for church the next night. We made Apple Pie Dip and ate it with graham crackers the night we taste tested it and cinnamon chips at church the next day. My mom and I were on apple duty... which wasn't too bad since we used a Victorio apple peeler. And then my sister in law made the YUMMY treat! But I got the recipe to share with you. It tasted just like an apple pie, and was too good to not share with you!

How cool is that? All thanks to the handy apple peeler. My mom and I bought one for ourselves as well!





Apple Pie Dip
2 cups peeled, cored, and diced apple
2 tbsp fresh lemon/calamansi juice
3 tbsp brown sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp water

Directions:
Combine all the dip ingredients in a small pan except the cornstarch-water mixture.
Heat for a few minutes until it’s boiling and has extracted juice from the apple.
Add cornstarch-water mixture to the “sauce”
Put back on stove top until boiling and the sauce has thickened.
Set aside. You can serve this warm or chilled. It doesn’t matter. It will taste delicious.


Cinnamon Chips
5 (6-inch) wheat tortillas
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Directions:
Cut tortillas into desired wedge size.
Put in a slightly greased baking pan.
Brush the tortillas with butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and bake at 400ยบ F until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
Let them cool before serving and serve with the Apple Pie Dip

That is right people. FALL IS HERE. Bring on the boots, scarves, apple cider, pumpkin cookies, and cinnamon treats.

Love,
Deidre
