Over the past couple of weeks, I have been busy in the kitchen with my kids, partly because I was preparing for a talk on cooking with kids, and partly because I was hankering for some fall-flavored foods! I came across this recipe from the Family Fun website as I was searching for things to try with my children. This dip makes a great (somewhat) healthy snack. It's not fried. There's a little sugar in it to counter the tart apples. You can also control how much cinnamon sugar you sprinkle on the chips. If it's too much for you, then use a light hand. Best of all, you can make this in advance! There's no messing around with pie crust, but you do get the flavor of apple pie.
Sorry I don't have a picture of this one. We ate it up before I could get a shot! Enjoy!
Apple Pie Party Dip
1 1/3 cups peeled, cored, and diced apple (I used Granny Smith)
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. apricot preserves
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
For Cinnamon Sugar Chips:
5 (6”) flour tortillas (I used the large ones from Costco—they worked just fine)
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ Tbsp. sugar
Combine all dip ingredients in a bowl.
Cover the dip and refrigerate until chilled. This is great to make early in the day for snacking later on!
While you’re waiting for the dip to chill, make the cinnamon sugar chips. Brush melted butter onto the tortillas.
Cut tortillas into wedges or strips.
Arrange wedges or strips onto a nonstick/greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350° F until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
