cup (1 ¾ L) peeled and chopped apples
tsp (20 mL) lemon juice
cup (250 mL) Black Diamond Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese
Tbsp (90 mL) maple syrup
Tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
cup (300 mL) large-flake rolled oats
cup (125 mL) chopped walnuts
cup (75 mL) packed brown sugar
tsp (1 mL) salt
cup (75 mL) melted butter
cup (250 mL) vanilla or plain yogurt
In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add cheese, 4 tbsp (60 mL) of the syrup, the flour and cinnamon, tossing to combine; spread in a greased 9-inch (2.5 L) square (or equivalent-sized oval) baking dish.
In a bowl, stir oats, walnuts, sugar and salt; add butter, tossing until combined. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture.
Bake in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven until apples are tender and topping is crisp and deep golden, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir yogurt and remaining syrup to combine. Serve apple crisp warm with maple yogurt.
