An Apple Moment

Well guys we've made it to Friday and I'll toast to that. I've had a crazy busy week with shoots, closet things, and my day job! So to say the least I'm ready to take a moment and just relax.

Today's Martini Moment is more of a mimosa. Just add a splash of apple cider to your champagne and you've got a fresh fall take on this amazing drink. For an added bonus dip the rim in Carmel and then cinnamon and sugar. To die for.

I came across this quick and quite delicious recipe not long ago and have been dying to make it. Perfect for a brunch or an after dinner dessert.

No Bake Apple Bites

  • 3 apples peeled, cored, and chopped
  • juice half of a lemon
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 vanilla extract
  • 1/8 nutmeg and allspice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 package of mini phyllo shells
  • whipped cream for topping

Heat a saucepan with apples, lemon, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, allspice, water, and cornstarch and cook until the apples are soft and mixture is thick. Allow it to cool a little before adding to the shells, then just top with whipped cream and cinnamon.

Wishing you a fun filled weekend! Cheers!
