Cooking at Extended Day

Our Extended Day program takes advantage of early Wednesday dissmisal by using the extra hour to have a Cooking Day. We always choose an activity that can accommodate even our youngest chefs! This week we started with one of our favorite fall recipes that is not only easy and fun, but gives us an excuse to use some wonderful apples that are available this time of year.

Everyone had fun chopping and mixing and baking to create this yummy snack. We’d love to share the recipe with you!

Dip ingredients
1 1/3 cups peeled, cored, and diced apples
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons apricot preserves
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine all the dip ingredients in a bowl, mix well then cover and refrigerate.

Chip ingredients
5 (6inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Cut each tortilla into halves, then quarters, then eighths. (Sneak in a math lesson!) Arrange the wedges on a greased baking sheet and brush with butter.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle onto wedges.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Cool and serve around individual bowls of your chilled apple dip or make one great big bowl for a party!

This recipe serves 4, so we quadrupled it (more math!) to share with the fifth grade Game Club that meets on Wednesdays.
