Ingredients

  • 1 graham cracker
  • 1/2 small apple diced
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons unsweetened cinnamon applesauce
  • Dollop of whipped cream

Instructions

  • Crush or break the graham cracker into coarse crumbs and place in the bottom of a small cup or bowl. Layer the diced apples on top. Spread applesauce on top of the apples and top with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Serve immediately.

Notes

You can put the graham cracker in a plastic baggie and gently bash it with a rolling pin or the flat side of meat mallet. Or you may break and crush the graham cracker with your hands.
Use your favorite type of apple. If you need to dice it ahead of time, you can toss the pieces with a little lemon juice to keep them from browning too quickly.
You may use regular applesauce instead of cinnamon. You can stir some cinnamon into it or not.
To make fresh whipped cream, pour about 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 to 2 tablespoons powdered sugar into a bowl. Use an electric mixer on low to combine, then beat on medium-high to high speed until stiff peaks just form. Store leftover whipped cream in an airtight container in the fridge. Alternatively, you may use spray whipped cream from a can or omit the whipped cream altogether.
