"One of the nicest things in life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating."

Apples ala Creme'
Like Apple Pie ala Mode ... but better
14 Minutes to Prepare and Cook
2 apples (I used Fuji)
2 reduced fat Graham Crackers (1 serving)
1 box instant Sugar-free Fat-free Vanilla Pudding
2 cups skim milk
1 packet Splenda
Dash of Cinnamon
Spray Margarine (optional)
Core and chop apples. Place in a microwave safe bowl and sprinkle with
cinnamon and 1 packet of Splenda (or a spoonful of sugar if you avoid Splenda).
Add a tablespoon of water or fruit juice. Cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Microwave for approx. 3 minutes. Allow to sit covered while you prepare
the rest of the dish.
Prepare the pudding per package directions and refrigerate while you
go to the next step.
Break each graham cracker in half and break each half into a separate
bowl (one of 4 small dessert bowls or custard cups). Leave graham crackers
in big pieces not fine crumbles. Spray with spray margarine if you wish
... microwave 1 minute.
Top each graham cracker with 1/4 of the diced apples.
Top each dish with 1/2 cup of the pudding. Garnish with a tiny dash
of cinnamon if you wish. Serve immediately.
** This prep makes a nice mix of hot/cold ... much like Apple pie topped
with ice cream. But if you don't like that contrast, refrigerate the steamed
apples prior to assembling the dish.
