Pumpkins, Apples, and Country Crock

 

The Pumpkin Mania continues!!! If you didn’t see yesterday’s Pumpkin Bars you might want to take a peek!

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and for me that means experimenting and planning. I absolutely LOVE anything pumpkin and I’m pretty sure I could eat it year round, but my hubby and other family members aren’t so pumpkin obsessed so for them I have to come up with dessert alternatives which usually means some sort of apple dish. So I thought it would be fun to share two of my favorite Fall inspired desserts, Pumpkin Muffins and Apple Bake and I’ll be using Country Crock baking sticks to make them super deelish!

Pumpkin Muffins:  

1 1/2 c. STEVIA
1 c. Country Crock Baking Sticks-softened
2 eggs
15 oz can organic pumpkin pie mix
1 1/2 c. wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. all spice
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Measure all ingredients in a big mixing bowl. Beat together well for 5 minutes. Pour into cupcake pans (fill more than 1/2 full). Bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes.
Apple Bake:
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 c. water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
6  sliced large apples
3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. Country Crock Baking Sticks

Combine 1/2 c. sugar, lemon juice, water and cinnamon in bottom of small baking pan. Slice in apples. Blend remaining 1/2 c. sugar, flour, salt and butter until crumbly. Spread over apples and pat smooth. Bake at 375°F. for 40-50 minutes, until apples are tender and crust is browned. Serve hot with whipped topping.

Which ever of these you choose they are sure to be a hit! I’ll be making BOTH!!

Healthy Wishes, T
