  • 1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar


Stir together granulated sugar, peanut butter, milk, and corn syrup in saucepan, place over medium heat, stirring, until mixture boils. Stir additional one minute, remove from heat, let stand without stirring until cool (approximately 45 minutes). Add peanuts and vanilla, stir in powdered sugar until stiff. Press into greased 9 x 5 loaf pan, refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into one-inch squares.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Peel and chop apples to make 2 1/4 cups, thaw phyllo sheets. Toss apples gently in lemon juice, add sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Stir and set aside. Spray 1 phyllo sheet with cooking spray, and cut lengthwise into 4 strips. Place one strip on top of another to make 2-ply. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon apple mixture onto one end of strip, fold the left bottom corner over mixture, forming a triangle. Continue folding over until you reach the end of the strip. Repeat to make 20 turnovers. Place triangles, seam-side down, on sprayed baking sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray. Bake at 7 minutes or until golden. Dust tops with sugar or drizzle with icing while warm.

      Fantastic stuff here. I've done WW a couple of times and loved the two point bars they sold. Anything that is three points or less is like gold. Great list of recipes. This one is really calling to me "Cranberry-Lemon Bars"
