Well, if you want to spice up (no pun intended) your usual apple crisp, here is a layered one, in a jar, with spiced apples and maple whipped cream. It’s soooooooo good! And you know I’m not a big fan of fruit desserts. But THIS, this is yummy!

  • 2 x ½ teaspoons butter
  • 1/8 cup apple juice

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation
Spiced apples

  1. Preheat oven to 275ºF.

    In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar, the spices (except the bay leaves), the vanilla seeds and the lemon juice. Add the apples and mix well.
  3. Spread the apples in a large baking tin. Add the bay leaves, butter and drizzle with apple juice. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 50 minutes or until the apples are tender. Let cool completely.

 Crisp

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the butter and mix until combined.

Assembly
