I defy anyone to think of a hearty, classic American meal and not think of apple pie. I don’t know how or why it became a symbol of Americana, but it’s present at every small-town diner and holiday gathering you see (whether on film or in person). Now, I was never a big fan of pies. The flaky, flavorless crust just didn’t do it for me, but I’d absolutely wolf down whatever was inside. And the soft, creamy Cinnamon Apples at the center of every apple pie were by far my favorite filling. Whether you serve this homemade version inside a grain-free pie crust, topped with coconut-based ice cream, or alongside your favorite meats and veggies, Cinnamon Apples are a welcome, comforting addition to just about any meal.
