Cinnamon Apple Delight @ Elizabeth, Marie, and Me

               About six months ago, I stumbled upon a really great channel on YouTube called Fully Raw Kristina, where Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram talks about her raw vegan lifestyle and shares some of her recipes.  For my Cinnamon Apple Delight recipe, I was inspired by her fully raw apple pie recipe (click here for her recipe).   My recipe, of course, is neither vegan nor fully raw because I used almonds and honey, but it's healthy and super delicious!  I hope you try it!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

1.) Fuji apples (or any apple of your choice)

2.) Dried figs

3.) Dried pitted dates

4.) Whole almonds (unsalted)

5.) Ground cinnamon 

6.) Nutmeg

7.) Honey

Here are the kitchen tools you will need: 

1.) Non-stick cake pan (8" x 2" round)

2.) Wax paper and kitchen scissors 

3.) Silicone spatula

4.) Food processor 

5.) Measuring spoons 

6.) Fruit and vegetable peeler

7.) Knife and cutting board

8.) Pastry brush

9.) Small bowl

LAYER #1: The Crust 

1.) 1/4 cup almonds
2.) Approximately 10 dried figs
3.) Approximately 30 dried pitted dates

1.) Cut the wax paper to fit nicely at the bottom of your cake pan
2.) Grind the almonds, figs, and dates into the food processor until it reaches a sticky cookie dough-like consistency 
3.) Take the mixture out of the food processor and press into the bottom of the cake pan to create an even layer (about 1 centimeter thick)

LAYER #2: The Sauce

1.) 1 apple
2.) 1 tsp. honey 
3.) 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 
4.) 1 small pinch of nutmeg

1.) Use a peeler to take off the skin of the apple
2.) Cut apple into small cubes
3.) Blend the apples, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg in the food processor until it has the consistency of apple sauce
4.) Scoop out the mixture and spread it onto the first layer (be sure to keeps some of the left over juice in the processor for the last layer)

LAYER #3: The Arranged Apples 

1.) Approximately 2 apples

1.) Use a peeler to take off the skin of the apples
2.) Cut apple into thin slices
3.) Arrange the apple slices on top the apple sauce in an overlapping pattern

LAYER #4: The Glaze

1.) 1/2 tsp. apple juice (left over from the apple sauce)
2.) 1 tbsp. honey
3.) 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 

1.) Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl 
2.) Use a pastry brush to glaze the top apple layer
3.) Place dessert into the refrigerator for 30 mins. 
4.) Slice and serve
