After last night's workout, I was craving something sweet but didn't want to eat something heavy, like a cupcake. This baked apple with ricotta cheese hit the spot, providing the perfect blend of tart, creamy and sweet. The ideal dessert for a chilly fall evening!
Baked Apple with Ricotta Cheese*
1 apple (I used a red delicious apple)
1/2 cup water
Dash of cinnamon
1/8 cup part skim ricotta cheese
Drizzle of honey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Core the apple, dice into bite size pieces and place in an oven safe dish. Add water and dash of cinnamon on top. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. After baking, strain off liquid and add apple pieces to a serving dish. Top with ricotta cheese and a drizzle of honey.
*I didn't measure the cinnamon and honey
