I found a great recipe for Apple Syrup for my waffle and cottage cheese breakfast from Taste of Home. It really tasted good and made breakfast feel like it was in the spirit of Christmas cooking. Only took 10 min. to make with apple juice and no one noticed it was sugar free. Everyone loved it! I hope you will enjoy it, too!
Prep/ Total Time: 10 min.
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups unsweetened apple juice
Sugar substitute equivalent to 4 teaspoons sugar (I used Spenda)
In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in sugar substitute. Yield: 1-1/4 cups.
Note: Each serving is 2 tablespoons which is plenty!
