Enjoy your sautéed apples with the custard sauce on top, or serve them up fondue style with the sauce on the side.

Ingredients

cooking spray

1 spray(s), butter-flavored

fresh apple(s)

4 medium, cored and thinly sliced (unpeeled)

frozen apple juice concentrate (undiluted)

1¼ oz, thawed, about 2 tbsp

dark brown sugar

3 Tbsp

margarine

2 tsp

cornstarch

2 tsp

fat free creamer

¾ cup(s), such as fat-free half-and-half

Instructions

  1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Add apple slices and sauté over medium heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add apple juice concentrate and simmer until juice is absorbed, about 2 to 3 minutes; set aside over very low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, combine sugar and margarine in a heavy-bottomed pot. Cook over low heat until sugar melts, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of half-and-half until smooth; add remaining half-and-half and pour cornstarch mixture into melted sugar. (Note: Be careful of splattering because the mixture may sizzle.) Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and smooth, about 2 minutes. Yields about 1 cup of apple slices and 2 tablespoons of sauce per serving.
