Our fruit side is our homemade Baked Applesauce. YUM!
Finally, our dairy/dessert is vanilla yogurt with some cute little flower sprinkles in it.
7-8 large apples peeled, cored and cut into chunks
a sprinkle of cinnamon
*yep, that's it.
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Core your apples. (I find it easiest to cut the apple in quarters and then core the apple by cutting the center out on a slant.)
Cut your apples into chunks.
Place the apple chunks on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon. We like Saigon Cinnamon. Use as much or as little as you'd like.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until tender enough to mash.
While still warm, use a potato masher to smash them into sauce. (great stress relief!) Or put into a food processor if you prefer smoother applesauce. We like it chunky like apple pie.
That's it. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. It's great cold or warm. My favorite way is warm with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream.
