This time of year, the smell of cinnamon and sweet apples brightens the house, makes it feel cozy. Yes, it's cold and dark and food tastes better in the winter. We still can eat low calorie, however; keeping our figures from ruin during the long dark months is good for self esteem.
Here's a recipe that's naturally sweet, although you can add a little crust of baked-on sugar if you want.
Set your oven to 400 degrees. Pick apples that are sweet and tart. Core the apples. Set in a baking dish , the bottom of which is covered with water. Fill each apple with sugar,cinnamon and/or nutmeg, and butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with coconut milk or non-dairy vanilla yogurt (some people can eat goat yogurt.)
