4 cups thinly sliced peeled Red Delicious apple (about 2 apples)
2/3 cup apple juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon rum flavoring
3 ounces mascarpone cheese
3/4 cup low-fat cinnamon crisp graham cracker crumbs (about 8 crackers), divided
1 cup vanilla fat-free frozen yogurt
Mascarpone cheese (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 6 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon allspice in a medium saucepan. Cook 20 minutes over medium-low heat until apples are tender and mixture is slightly thick. Remove apple mixture from heat; let cool. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon allspice, vanilla, rum flavoring, and mascarpone.
Spoon 1/4 cup apple mixture into each of 4 parfait glasses; sprinkle each with 1 1/2 tablespoons crumbs. Top each with 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup apple mixture, and 1 1/2 tablespoons crumbs. Garnish with additional mascarpone cheese, if desired. Serve immediately.
Supereasy & very good. Found this looking for no-shopping recipes to use leftover mascarpone. Made adult version using Fuji & Empire apples, apple cider instead of juice, and 1/2tbs rum rather than flavoring. Sprinkled top with leftover sugared nuts from CL's pumpkin pie pudding. Surprisingly yummy.
