A wonderful apple dessert! The fall apple crop had me looking for new apple desserts - this one was as delicious as I thought it would be. The cheddar cheese, toasted almonds, the raisins along with the breadcrumbs make for a winner. Looks lovely plated. That grandma Andy so knows how to cook - and you obviously know how to pick those recipes! Thank you for sharing.
this is a nice healthy apple crisp dessert.
