Henry's favorite dessert is Apple Pie, which Chris brings for holidays and occasionally just for dinner. I've begged Chris for the recipe, not that I'll ever be ambitious enough to make it, mostly because I could never successfully match Chris's pie, but just because it is so good.
It's not just that this is easy to make, it is also pretty healthy. Compared to the alternatives, the sugar is minimal. The sugar is mixed with cinnamon (a lot in this recipe because Henry loves cinnamon - adjust accordingly) and flour to give the apples a "pie filling taste" and to help evenly distribute the small amount of sugar.
4 small apples or fewer larger ones (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
If using larger apples, cut slices in half to make them "bite-sized".
Put apples in a medium sized bowl* and toss with
1 t lemon juice
In a small bowl combine:
1 t ground cinnamon (adjust to your/child's tatse)
Mix and add to the apple - lemon juice mixture and toss until well mixed.
Put mixture into a pie plate.
