Light & Healthy Apple Hand Pies
Very Good 4.2/5
(20 ratings)

Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.

Vanilla Pudding
Very Good 4.4/5
(7 ratings)

I serve this sometimes with frozen strawberries, sometimes with chocolate syrup, and sometimes with pound cake. It can be used like a custard sauce if you like. I find it much easier to make than traditional custard, which is usually thickened only with egg yolks.

Country Peach Tart (Galette aux Peches)
Very Good 4.6/5
(13 ratings)

If you're a crust lover, this pie is for you. Sometimes called a country tart or a galette, the pie crust is laid out flat on a baking sheet, with the filling piled in the center. The crust gets folded up and can be brushed with milk or eggs whites and sprinkled with sugar before baking. The result is more crispy, delicious pie crust in every bite.

When I want chocolate mousse, only the real deal will do. This version is low in fat, but it's still creamy and rich. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!
