I’ve been on a single serving dessert kick ever since I snagged this KitchenAid® Artisan® Mini Mixer- finding ways to whip up easy, healthy and delicious treats has been a major goal of my pregnancy. Which is what led me to an apple pie craving, which led me to this apple pie-ish incarnation, which leads me to sharing it with you because keeping it to myself would be practically criminal!
Now that we’re in the throws of fall I am craving all of the apple everythings- and this little treat hits the nail on the head for me! Warm, brown buttery cinnamon apples topped with fresh whipped cream, which is a breeze to whip up (HA!) in my mini mixer. (An aside: why is it that everything mini is so much more fun?! Case in point: mini ponies, mini cupcakes, and mini golf!)
My friends, are you into brown butter? I’m sort of new to it, but since I started making it it’s been a weekly addition. The carmelly, nutty flavor is just the BEST! And it’s so easy to make but also makes you feel like legitimate baker genius. Win- WIN! Add apples and cinnamon, top with fresh whipped cream and you’ve got yourself a simple treat that tastes far more decadent than it is!
Seriously, thank you KitchenAid® for giving me an excuse to make small batches of whipped cream. My pregnancy has been a million times better because of it. Fresh whipped cream makes everything better, now that I think of it.
And thank all of you for supporting KitchenAid®, whose partnership made this post possible. Hope you love! xx- Sarah
