Apples are readily available starting in the fall and throughout the winter season, so I find myself creating lots of new recipes for using this nutritional powerhouse in crisps and casseroles. As a satisfying snack, I adore them cored, sliced and slathered with peanut butter. Baking apples is another on of my all-time favorites and these delectable beauties are kept moist and juicy by wrapping them in parchment before baking. The result is a mouthwatering, healthy dessert that doubles as a delightful breakfast treat all winter long!
