25 Days of Christmas: Day 10

Favorite Holiday Recipe!

Well that is easy!

I actually have two for ya!

First off, if you're watching your calories (or points, for that matter) this one is for you! I used to go to Weight Watchers and while there, they shared such wonderful, yummy recipes. This one is super easy to make and oh so yummy, if you like pumpkin! You can even freeze them to enjoy later.

Pumpkin muffins

{Weight Watcher pts: 1 pt/muffin}
1 box spice cake mix
1 small can pumpkin 15 oz
2/3 cup water

Mix ingredients together until fluffy or just mixed well.

Bake at 350' for 45 min.

Makes 18 muffins. Serve cold or warm with whipped cream.


My other favorite is the Dutch Apple Pie that I shared in this post.

Dutch Apple Pie

1 graham cracker crust
1 lg egg yolk, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush bottom and sides of crust evenly with egg yolk; bake on baking sheet until light brown, about 5 minutes. Remove crust from oven.


5 1/2 c. fresh, peeled, sliced cooking apples
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 c. sugar
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Combine apples, lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tbsp flour, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well and spoon into crust.


3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter

Mix remaining flour, brown sugar and butter with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping mixture evenly over apples. Bake on baking sheet until topping is golden and filling is bubbling, about 50 minutes. Cool thoroughly on wire rack (at least 4 hours). Serve at room temperature.

Oh so yummy....ENJOY!
