The fragrant, sweet and warm taste of cinnamon is a perfect spice to use together with The Granny Smith apple. This apple gets its name from its founder, Mrs. Mary Ann (Granny) Smith. Granny Smith Apples are crisp, juicy, and tart which makes them perfect. The chewy flesh of raisins gives a burst of sugary sweetness and the walnuts provide an invited crunch.
1 peeled, cored and finely chopped Granny Smith apple
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons raisins
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
15 homemade mini fillo dough shells(Refer to Key Lime Tart for how to make)
Red glazed cherries for garnish
In a medium skillet, sauté apples, walnuts, raisins, brown sugar and butter over low heat until apples are tender, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon.
Cool slightly and spoon 1 tablespoon of apple mixture into each mini Fillo Shell.
Garnish with half a glazed cherry.
