Lightly sweetened, highly spiced apple slices bake until glossy and perfectly tender. They make a delicious topping for pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, or yogurt, or an easy pie filling. You can even improvise a quick individual apple crisp by warming a serving of apples in a ramekin and sprinkling with your favorite granola. We recommend using two kinds of apples for a great balance of flavor and texture: tart Granny Smiths, which become very soft, and sweet Honeycrisp, which remain slightly firmer.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)
