The taste of autumn mixed with the zip of cinnamon...without the sticks!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 3/4 cups apple juice, divided
  • 1/3 cup red-hot cinnamon candies
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon red food color
  • 4 tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (½ stick) butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan, combine 1-1/2 cups apple juice, the cinnamon candies, vanilla, and food color; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until the candies dissolve. Add the apples and return to a boil, stirring constantly.

  2. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the apples are tender, stirring frequently.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup apple juice and the cornstarch; add to the apple mixture, stirring for 1 to 2 minutes, or until thickened.

  4. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  5. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter; mix well. Spoon 1/3 of the apple mixture evenly into 4 to 6 parfait glasses. Sprinkle 1/3 of the crumb mixture over the apples. Repeat the layers 2 more times. Chill for about 2 hours, until cool. Serve, or cover and keep chilled until ready to serve.


These look great topped with a dollop of whipped cream and some additional cinnamon candies.
