Fall Is Finally Here!

Yeah! Fall has finally hit Colorado. The air is crisp and the nights cool, and the sky that lovely shade of blue I've only ever seen here. I love it. And to me, fall means apples! I found this great apple dessert recipe at the dentist's office a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share. I haven't made it yet, but it sounds so yummy!

Apple and Cheddar Crumble

6 cups peeled and coarsely chopped apples (about 2 pounds)
1 lemon, juiced
8 oz shredded cheddar (2 cups)
½ cup golden raisins
½ cup lite brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup quick cook oats
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Heat oven to 375º. Spray 13 x 9” pan with Pam. In large bowl fold together apples, lemon juice, cheese and raisins. Spoon into dish.

In another bowl combine sugar, flour, oats, butter and pumpkin pie spice. Mix until crumbly. Scatter over apple mixture.

Bake at 375º for 30 minutes or until nicely browned and apples are tender. Serve warm. Good with whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Makes 8 servings, each serving: 326 cal, 15 g fat, 2 g fiber; 7 points WW.

You know what...That all sounds good except for the cheese. I can't picture those things going together...
Make it and let me know how it turns out!
