Baked Apple Slices


baked apple slices

My first instinct when making these baked apple slices was to sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon before baking, But I used delicious, crisp, sweet Fuji apples and it occurred to me that the apples provide more than enough sweetness. So I just sprinkled them with cinnamon, baked, and the result was wonderful. No sugar added, yet it tasted like dessert! Served with a cup of plain Greek yogurt, these baked apple slices make a wonderful, healthy, filling snack.
