This recipe was adapted from one I found in Gourmet Magazine. I make cinnamon pita chips to use as garnish. Total time includes cooling.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and core apples, then cut into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Bring apples, water, Splenda, zest, and cinnamon to a boil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes.
  3. Remove lid and simmer until most of liquid is evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add apple brandy and simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 minute.
  5. Mash apples with a potato masher or a fork to a coarse sauce, then cool.
  6. For Garnish - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place pitas on cookie sheet and spray both sides with non-stick cooking spray. Cut each pita into 4 wedges. Sprinkle both sides of wedges with mixture of Splenda and cinnamon. Bake in oven just until crisp (5-7 minutes).
