This week for Fresh Tip Tuesday we made Cinnamon Apple Crisp. After taking my girls to the mountains to go apple picking it just seemed like the right thing to share 🙂 I love apples. In fact, the first time I was on WBTV I shared some great facts about Apples and made a Rustic Apple Tart.
For example, did you know it takes 2 pounds of apples make one 9-inch pie? There is also a reason we have the saying “an apple a day will keep the doctor away.” Two-thirds of the fiber and lots of antioxidants are found in the peel. So don’t peel them. Antioxidants help to reduce damage to cells, which can trigger some diseases. They are fat, sodium, and cholesterol free. Apples are also shown to help your memory since they contain high levels of boron, which stimulates electrical activity of the brain and increases mental alertness.

Cinnamon Apple Crisp
4-6 apples, cored and sliced
1 (21 oz.) box Krusteaz Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake & Muffin Mix **For the live video I used a Spice Cake and my own streusel mix by mixing 1/4 cup brown sugar with 4 tbsps of Tupperware’s Cinnamon Vanilla Seasoning**
1 stick butter, cut into pieces
Whipped cream or Ice cream if desired
1. In the base of the Tupperware Microwave Pressure Cooker add half the apples.
2. Pour half the Crumb Cake & Muffin Mix, and half the cinnamon mixture over apples.
3. Top with half the butter, repeat layers.
4. Secure cover onto base. Microwave on high power 15 minutes. Remove from microwave. Let stand 10
minutes or until pressure indicator valve is in the down position.
5. Top with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
The apples do cook down alot, so don’t be scared by how full the pressure cooker looks when you first layer and fill it up.
