    Well I did one for peanut butter tarts but I already knew that one.

    Can't we even have a productive pie fight anymore?

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.

      Kinda like a pie recipe...

      I love cinnamon and sugar.  I love crispy snacky things.  I made these up when I was on weight watchers.  They are quick and easy.

      10 - 12 wonton skins
      splenda (or other sweetener)
      spray fake butter (like I can't believe it's not butter)

      Mix the cinnamon and the sweetener together to make a cinnamon sugar.

      Cut the wonton skins (which are square) into quarters
      Arrange on a baking sheet (I use parchment paper underneath to make cleaning easier)
      Spray them all with a few spritzes of the butter
      Sprinkle Cinnamon/Sweetener mix over the top
      Bake at 250 until crispy and slightly browned.

      When cool, separate into 4 zip lock baggies to keep them fresh.  You can keep these on hand for a quick snack or when you just want to crunch on something.

      You don't have to deny yourself the things you love and enjoy.  You just need to replace the bad bits with better bits.  I found many recipes out there for healthy alternatives  to my bad habits. Of course the best thing is not have the bad habit in the first place.
