Weekend treat: Apple Pie Dip

Happy Friday!

Here’s a quick little treat that is so fast to make it’s almost a sin not to treat yourself to a batch of this at some point over the weekend. Whether you’ve got friends coming over or are planning a movie marathon for 1, this is a seasonal must: Apple Pie Dip with cinnamon sugar pita chips.

Apple Pie Dip (Originally published at http://www.thepeachkitchen.com)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cornstarch, dissolved in 1 tsp water

Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the cornstarch-water mixture in a small pan (or microwaveable bowl, if you want to do this in the microwave).
  2. Heat for a few minutes until it’s boiling and the apple has released its juices
  3. Remove from heat and add the cornstarch-water mixture
  4. Return to heat (or microwave) and return to boiling, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened. It doesn’t take very long.
  5. Pour into a serving bowl and set aside. This can be served warm, or chilled, and is delicious either way. When you’re ready to dive in, open that bag of cinnamon-sugar pita chips and enjoy!

After we inhaled the first batch, I realized this could also be good spread on top of cinnamon-sugar graham crackers. You know, if you wanted to go all wild like that.

Hope your first weekend of October is a good one!
