Diabetic Apple Tart

Serves 8

Ingredients

  • For Filling:
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 3 tbsp packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute
  • 2 tsp butter or butter replacement
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 small sweet apples of your choice, equal to a pount, cored and halved lengthwise
  • For Crust:
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp fat-free milk

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Start by making the filling. In a small skillet, combine apple juice, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and salt. Bring all to boiling then reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove contents from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Place a 6-ounce pudding or custard cup, upside down, in the center of a 9-inch pie plate. Lightly coat the outside of the custard cup with cooking spray. Using the spines of a fork, score the uncut sides of apple halves. Place them, cut sides up, in pie plate around evenly distributed around custard cup. Drizzle apples with sauce.
  4. Prepare the crust. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, mix in butter until it forms coarse crumbs. Using a fork, stir in milk until combined. Gather mixture together and knead gently just until dough forms and maintains its shape in a ball.
  5. On a well-floured surface, slightly flatten dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a 10-inch circle. Place pastry over apples and custard cup (pastry will sink down over apples). Tuck dough between apples and pie plate. Bake for 12 minutes.
  6. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake tart for 25 to 30 minutes more or until pastry is golden and apples are tender.
  7. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Invert tart (turn upside down) onto a 10- to 12-inch serving plate. To serve, cut into wedges and spoon sauce from custard cup over wedges.
