  • 1 large apple
  • 8 ounce medium wavy noodles
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 8 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pierce apple around all sides with a fork; place on a microwaveable plate. Cover with waxed paper. Place apple in microwave oven and cook on high (100%) power for one minute. Test with fork for doneness. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals until apple is fork-tender. Allow to cool. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in cottage cheese, cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon. Cut skin from apple, then core and dice. Stir diced apples and noodles into creme mixture. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 12 (1/2 cup) muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon and heap noodle mixture into cups. In a small bowl, combine melted butter with vanilla wafer crumbs; sprinkle over noodles in cups. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Run a knife around each noodle pudding and remove from muffin cups. Serve immediately.
