You can impress your family and friends with a beautiful, healthy holiday dessert if you prepare this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Sparkling Apple Crumple.
Look for phyllo dough in the freezer section of your grocery store. It’s a healthier choice than puff pastry because it’s lower in fat – so low, in fact, that we brush it with a little melted butter before baking to give it a shiny, crisp glaze.
Inside, the phyllo is filled with spiced apples, walnuts, cranberries and raisins, then baked to a crisp perfection. Apples are known to have cancer-fighting phytochemicals called flavonoids. Walnuts contain healthy omega-3 fat, which also may protect against cancer. Like other berries, cranberries are rich in anthocyanadins and raisins provide natural sweetness.
Decorated with a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar, Sparkling Apple Crumple will delight everyone at the table — and they’ll never guess how easy it was to prepare!
