Favorite Ingredients Friday

Blushing Apples

1. 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Brand Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
2. 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
3. 4 cups water
4. 4 medium apples, such as Granny Smith, McIntosh or Golden Delicious
5. 1/2 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

1.COMBINE dry gelatin mix and cinnamon in 3- to 4-qt. saucepan. Add water. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until gelatin is completely dissolved.
2. PEEL and core apples. Add to gelatin mixture in saucepan; partially cover saucepan with lid. Return to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 to 15 min. or just until apples are fork tender, gently turning apples every 5 min. Remove apples from liquid.
3. SERVE apples warm. Or, cool and store in tightly covered container in refrigerator at least 1 hour or overnight. Serve each apple topped with 2 Tbsp. of the whipped topping. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.

After removing the apples from the cooking liquid you can pour it into a bowl and refrigerate to make a refreshing jell-o snack - two desserts in one!

I made this a couple of weeks ago and it was really good, the apples were tender and had a nice flavor to them.

You can substitute any flavor Jell-o.

That sounds really good and it's safe for my sons food allergies which is an added bonus (minus the whipped topping). Thanks for sharing:D
