Healthy treats for Halloween

Most people find it hard to resist their temptation for sweet treats this time of year. It's good to know that farmers market bounty can help satisfy that temptation. And while I try to avoid indulging in sweet things every day, I love to prepare this type of  dessert from time to time. Here are a three choices from my archives: Baked apples, a fruit brown betty and a fruit crisp. It's easy to adapt the crisp recipe for the season, using pears and apples instead of peaches and berries. Enjoy and have a happy and safe Halloween!
