Apples with dip

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted peanuts
  • 4 medium or 8 small apples, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Directions

Remove the cream cheese from the refrigerator to allow it to soften, about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, vanilla and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Stir in chopped peanuts.

Place sliced apples in another bowl. Drizzle orange juice over the apples to prevent browning. Drain the sliced apples and serve with the dip.
