Apple Crisps with Eggnog Whipped-Cream Dip
If you're tired of serving up boring ol' chips and dip during the holidays, this is a sweet twist on that old go-to. These apple crisps are perfectly sweet and go oh-so-well with eggnog whipped cream. The apples can be made ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container for a week or so. Pull them out when you are ready and whip up the cream in less than 10 minutes!
- 3 Pink Lady Apples, sliced thinly by hand or with a mandolin — 1/8 inch thick
- Cinnamon powder
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/8 cup your favorite eggnog
- 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Two to three apples will yield 20-30 chips. Preheat oven to 225° and arrange apple slices on parchment-lined baking sheet, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Place in the oven for 1.5 hours, flipping the apple slices before baking another 30 minutes until the apples are crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
While the apples are cooling or just before you are ready to serve them, combine heavy cream, eggnog and powdered sugar in a mixer. Beat on medium high until white peaks start to form.
Place cream in a serving dish, dust with cinnamon and garnish with fresh mint.
Smile as your guests try to identify the hint of eggnog flavoring in the whipped cream. One thing's for certain — they'll definitely leave with a new memory of chips and dip!
Cheers to the season!
