Apple Cobbler

Just because your heart healthy diet calls for cutting down on fat, doesn't mean you can't enjoy dessert. This cobbler cuts fat and includes apples, an excellent source of fiber.
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 medium tart apples (like Macintosh or Granny Smith), peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat biscuit mix
  • 2 tablespoons light margarine, melted
  • 3 tablespoons water

Mix cornstarch, sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan. Add 3/4 cup water and mix well. Add apples. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until liquid thickens and apples just begin to soften, about 6 minutes. Pour into 1-quart casserole dish. Stir biscuit mix and margarine together. Add 3 tablespoons water and mix well. Spread on top of apple mixture. Bake at 400 degrees until top is lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
