Guest Blog Post: Fried Apple with Nilla Wafer Tart

I am so excited to do my first ever guest blog post! I would like to introduce you guys to my fellow Gator alum Briana of The Seasoning Bottle. She is amazing you guys! I first met Briana in undergrad at The University of Florida (Go Gators!) and even there she was cooking up amazing sweet treats that everyone loved! She describes her cooking as intuitive, spicy, and bold. I hope you guys enjoy this awesome Friendsgiving recipe that she cooked up especially for you!
"Wow your friends at this year's Friendsgiving with this sweet and tart dessert - Fried Apples with a nilla wafer crust. Bring it back to the old school days when your parents packed Nilla Wafers for you for lunch. Nilla wafers are great alternative to the traditional graham cracker crust. With just a few simple ingredients for fried apples you will find yourself making this dish way past the holiday season. If you want to be fancy and show off your skills to friends prep the nilla wafer tart ahead of time and cook the fried apples on site. You will look like a pro."   

Here's what you'll need: 
2 granny smith apples
1/2 packed brown sugar
4 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

Wafer tart
1 1/2 cups crushed nilla wafers (about 20 wafers)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon sugar 
1 egg white

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place nilla wafers in a plastic bag and crush with a heavy item. (I used a thick glass). If you have a food processor, crumble cookies to a fine consistency. Add sugar and butter. Press wafer mix in a cupcake pan to form 5-6 cookie cups. Brush inside of crust with egg whites to seal any gaps. Bake for 6-8 or when edges are brown and center is firm. Cool for 10 minutes.  


Peel skin off apples. Remove core and cut in slices. 
In a skillet melt butter and sugar together at medium heat. Add apple slices once better and sugar start to form a caramel sauce. Fry apples in sauce until tender.

Remove crust from cupcake mold. Fill the crust with a spoon full of the fried apples and sauce. Serve with whipped cream of ice cream.
