    Exclamation Apple Delight (for a healthy alternative to apple pie)

    I haven't tried this, but it sounds good. Good for diabetics too!

    Apple Delight

    I n g r e d i e n t s

    • 2 tablespoons margarine, chilled
    • 1/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    • 3 medium-size (about 1 pound), apples, peeled, cored, and finely sliced
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 packets Sweet'N Low® granulated sugar substitute

    I n s t r u c t i o n s

    Cut margarine into flour with pastry blender or fork and mix with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse oatmeal. Stir in ricotta cheese and mix into a ball. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate at least 2 hours before rolling.

    Preheat oven to 375° F. In medium-size bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and Sweet'N Low. Arrange in 8- or 9-inch pie plate. On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, carefully roll out pastry to fit over top of pie plate. Lift over apples; press, and shape to fit edge of pie plate. Imprint edges with tip of floured teaspoon.

    Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Serve warm or chilled. Makes 6 servings.

    it sounds great but the only thing i would change would be the whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour..
