I just wanted to do a quick update for you guys on weight watcher points in my baking that I have done so far.
My odlums scones – the packet says that the ingredients make six scones – I make more than that as I make smaller scones then the packet says – therefore I estimate that my scones work out at 3 pro points per scone. This is the beauty of baking – you have the ability to make your ingredients better and make things smaller than is recommended. You will always remember being told in your weight watchers meeting that it is all about the portion sizing and that is so true and easier to manage when you are in control of those portions especially when baking.
My apple tart – an apple pie slice normally comes in at approximately 5 pro points. When it comes to my apple tart – it really does depend on each person and the slice that they take for themselves. Personally I load my apple tart on apples – Bramley seem to the best and I try to limit the amount of sugar that I put in the apple tart. When it comes to taking a slice I am lucky that my house mates love my apple tart and tend to eat more of it than I do. So I an normally left with very little apple tart to actually eat for myself. I am not complaining I take a small slice which I normally point at anywhere between 3 /4 pro points – which is for the pastry.
I hope this helps some of you guys out there. As I said above it is all to do with the portion sizing and the control you have with taking your slice.
