If you have a craving for apple pie alamode this tastes just like it and it can be dish in hand within 5 minutes! I actually like this better than apple pie now. Plus, if you’re on a diet or a diabetic then you can serve it with diabetic ice-cream and add some artificial sweetener to taste. It will only taste like you’re breaking the rules.
The apple you choose really make the taste and so pick your favorite apple that you think would taste great in an apple pie; normally you would avoid apples that go mushy when heated, but you don't have to worry about this here so pick your favorite apple.
If you want a suggestion I recommend Granny Smith, McIntosh, Cortland or Red Delicious.
Other great apples are: Northern Spy, Greening, Stayman, Jonamac, Macoun, Russet, Mutsu, York Imperial,
For a tart pie go with Jonathan, Jonagold, Winesap and Pippin apples.
For a sweeter taste try Fuji, Pink Lady, Suncrisp, Rome Beauty, and Empire apples.
Slice apple into very thin slices, then dice fine and place into a bowl.
Finely chop almonds and add them into the bowl.
Mix the almonds and apple slices together.
Pour a light drizzle of honey (to taste) over the tops of the almond-apple mix.
Sprinkle cinnamon (to taste) over the top of the Almond-Apple mix.
Lightly mix entire bowl contents.
Heat on high in microwave for 1 minute; stir slightly and then microwave again for 1 additional minute or until the apples are really soft and steamy hot.
Serve immediately over vanilla ice cream.
Optional: For a Dutch Apple taste, squeeze lemon juice over the top and drizzle with your favorite liqueur, to taste.
