Sautéed Apple Crisp

Sautéed Apple Crisp

In the fall months I love a huge slice of apple pie, but baking a pie is without a doubt the last thing on my list of things to do. I created the recipe below that will give you all of the warmness of a fresh baked pie without any of the work. The first thing you have to do is get some tasty apples and pears, any kind will do. Place the chopped fruit, butter and some dried cranberries into a pan over medium heat and cook them until they are soft.

While that is cooking you can whip up some homemade whipped cream sweetened with maple syrup. When the apples are almost done, add some of the pumpkin pie spice, which is a mixture of cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Cook for one minute to release the flavors in the spice.

Place the apples in a bowl and top with ¼ cup of granola, which takes the place of a baked crust or crumble topping. Finally, top the dish with a heaping spoonful of the maple whipped cream.

This is an easy, quick and tasty recipe for the whole family. You can substitute fresh or frozen, peaches, plums or pineapple and top with any number of granola flavors and creamy toppings.
