Apples. The quintessential fall food, in my opinion. To start the week off, I’m sharing warm apple topping made with Envy apples.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
This is my second time working with Envy Apples and I’m happy to be doing so. The first time I made cinnamon apple turnovers with maple glaze. They are delicious and crisp with a hint of sweet. And juicy,oh so juicy. You have to love their tag line – “when you’re this good they call you Envy”. Don’t take my word for it, though, learn more about Envy and “bite and believe”.
Just after I received this amazing box of beautiful apples, I got an email ad from a local market and there, right before my eyes, was an ad for Envy apples. Although they hail from New Zealand, they can be found around the country.
So back to this delicious warm apple topping. It’s a recipe I found in my Mom’s collection about a year ago. The first time I made it, the family love it. So much so that when I co-chaired a cookbook project at school, my boys were insistent it be submitted. They are also delicious served as a side dish to ham or over ice cream, my Mom’s Southwest Georgia Pound Cake, waffles or pancakes. That’s how my family really loves to enjoy this topping.
