Gingerbread in Drag

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Annacia

As a fancy dessert. This is a recipe I came up with when I had to use what was in the pantry. It turned out well enough to pass on to the Zaar family. I made half a recipe of Moist, Tender Spice Cake: Gingerbread Variation for this. Time does not include making the gingerbread cake.

This was a delicious combination and really made a few simple ingredients transform into something fresh and delicious. In my case, it was also a wonderfully easy and low point treat as I used Recipe #143452 and Recipe #73724 as my main ingredients. Topped it with a little sugar free caramel syrup (sorry no vanilla) and some Cool Whip free. Ahhhhhh, heaven for only 3 points. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (9 inch) gingerbread (homemade is best)
  • 1 (540 ml) can apple pie filling
  • whipped topping (canned, in a tub or homemade)
  • vanilla-flavored syrup (optional)


  1. Cut 1/2 of the gingerbread into squares 1/2 to 3/4 inch in size.
  2. Spoon the apple pie filling into 4 dessert dishes.
  3. Arrange the gingerbread cubes over the apples (you will have leftover gingerbread).
  4. Lightly drizzle the vanilla syrup over the gingerbread cubes in the dishes (if using syrup), you don't want to use so much that it will make the gingerbread soggy.
  5. Top with whipped topping and serve at once.
