Around this time of year, everywhere you go, it's PUMPKIN this and PUMPKIN that! Don't get me wrong - I love me some pumpkin, but we must not forget the crisp and delicious apple.
I'll admit it, I am not one of those people who like apples baked into anything - I kind of like them for what they are: CRISPY and refreshing apples. I would not pay attention to an apple turnover, or be impressed with an fried wonton "purse" filled with baked apples, nor would I even bat an eye to an apple pie. (I would maybe go nuts for a cider donut from Terchune Orchards in Princeton, NJ - because they are probably the best I ever had)
This recipe however, changed that.
I've been inspired by one of my new favorite blogs Pinch of Yum. This is a pretty straight forward recipe, which doesn't call for a lot of steps (I like that!)
**I modified it by adding a touch of apple cider to the batter, because it was very sticky and I had it on hand. (from making the Pomegranate Pear Punch ) I also added chopped walnuts. I believe the crunch compliments the cinnamon sugar "crunchy" mouth feel of the topping. I am happy to say that I brought some into my day job, and it was a hit! (Thanks to those who may be reading)
With Thanksgiving next week - this is a great dessert whether you are hosting or need something to bring.
What else will you be making for Thanksgiving this year?
