This Cinnamon Toast Crunch Apple Slice is my version of the midwest staple of Apple Slice. But uses Cinnamon Toast Crunch instead of Corn Flakes.
Apple pie is one of my ultimate comfort foods.
I think it is for a lot of people.
It’s also one of the few desserts that I really can’t stop eating.
So I try not to make it that often.
The way that I love to eat it most is in the form of Apple Slice.
It’s called different things different places.
But its apple pie that is made in a sheet pan instead of a pie pan.
The other difference is that it usually has crushed Cornflake cereal in it as well.
It’s also GIANT and you see it mostly at potlucks when baking for a crowd.
Since it is so large, I put off making it until now.
That is when I realized that I could just make a smaller version of it so that I don’t eat a whole sheet pan of it.
That and I only had 5 apples and the average apple slice takes about 10.
Like I said above traditional Apple Slice has crushed cornflakes.
I’m not sure why but sure, why not?
But since I rarely do traditional and it made more sense to me I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
I mean I’m already using cinnamon in the pie, why not use a cinnamon cereal?
I definitely like my Cinnamon Toast Crunch Apple Slice version better than the original.
Threw in some toffee pieces to the pie.
You don’t have to but I did for a little bit of extra flavor.
I also used a good amount of glaze because I love glaze.
But you can half the amount of glaze if needed.
And as always it’s a great day to order my cookbook.
If you love the recipes on the blog you will love the ones in the book!
