Apple Crisp

 Serves: 4 Servings     |     Prep: 10 min     |     Cook: 30 min     |     Ready: 40 min


2 medium Fuji apples, peeled, cored
     and sliced into ½-inch-thick slices
1 cup chopped raw walnuts, unsalted
(or pecans)
4 T. unsalted butter, melted
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 T. granulated sweetener (optional)


For a quick treat, I have made this in the microwave. Cook 10 minutes or so until apples are tender.


Preheat your oven to 375°F. Layer the apple slices in a square 9-inch baking dish, in one or two layers. You can also use four individual baking dishes.

In a medium bowl, using a fork, mix together the chopped walnuts, melted butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and (if using) sweetener.

Using a rubber spatula, pour the mixture over the apples, spreading it evenly.

Bake the coated apples until the walnut topping is golden and the apples are tender, 25-30 minutes.

Divide the apple crisp among four plates. Drizzle with the pan juices and serve.
