Recipe: Apple – Walnut Crisp

Apple-Walnut Crisp (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium apples, cored & chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 2 tbsp. cold butter
  • 1 cup Raisin Bran (or any bran flake cereal) – I use Raisin Bran because it has raisins in it.
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Instructions:

  • Spray ramekins (4, 6, or 8 oz.) with cooking spray.
  • Core apples and chop into bite size pieces. Put apples in a medium bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 tbsp. of cinnamon over apples and mix.
  • Put apple/cinnamon mixture into 4 ramekins.
  • In a bowl, mix remaining 1/2 tbsp. of cinnamon, 2 tbsp. of brown sugar, and 1 tbsp. of flour. Mix well.
  • Add 2 tbsp. of butter to mixture and mash butter into mixture until it becomes crumbles.
  • Add Raisin Bran and walnuts to mixture and mix well.
  • Spoon mixture over the tops of the apples.
  • Put ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
Variations: In the fall and winter, I like to add fresh cranberries to the recipe for a little added tartness. You can also add pears, nectarines, or pineapple to the recipe.
