Easy Apple Dessert
A thirty year old recipe that will convert pretty easily to Vegan if inclined. Tasty firm Granny Smith apples and walnuts create a lovely dessert for those surprise visitors, planned dinner guests or family of course. Make it fancy by adding a lemon curd drizzle, pumpkin butter, powdered sugar sprinkle, or whipped topping. Typically baked in an oblong baking dish or 9 inch square. Baking does take some time, about 45 minutes, and you will need a skewer or toothpick to check this one for doneness just to be sure. It’s packed with goodness!
Here’s the original recipe written for me on an office tablet. The person is unfortunately forgotten.
