As American as...

All of the taste of hot apple pie, in easy party-size format. This is another Pinterest find that I've wanted to make for a while now. I organized a Holiday Cheer party at the office this week and decided that my coworkers would make excellent test subjects. This is an incredibly simple and delicious recipe, and I think that it tastes exactly like a slice of hot apple pie. Serve with cinnamon sugar pita chips, and people will think you're a genius. Because, are.

Apple Pie Dip with Cinnamon Sugar Chips
adapted from The Peach Kitchen

2 cups peeled, cored, and diced apple
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp brown sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp water

Note: I doubled everything for a crowd of 15 people. The original as-written recipe doesn't make a large batch...probably enough for 5-8 people.

Combine all the dip ingredients, except the water and cornstarch, in a small pan on medium heat.

Heat for a few minutes until it’s boiling and has extracted juice from the apple. Add cornstarch-water mixture to the “sauce." Put back on the stove top until boiling and the sauce has thickened.

Set aside. You can serve this warm or chilled. It doesn’t matter. It will taste delicious.
