INSTRUCTIONS:

For apple filling:

  • Peel apples and cut into 1/4 inch dice. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium heat; add sugar and stir about 2 minutes or until sugar melts.
  • Add diced apples, and cook about 3 minutes or until apples just begin to soften. Combine lemon juice, Calbados, and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir until cornstarch is dissolved.
  • Add lemon juice mixture to the pan, and cook about 4 minutes, stirring, until juices thicken. Serve warm.

For crumble topping:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, oats, pecans, and coconut in a large bowl; stir until well combined. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter. Slowly add melted butter to the bowl, stirring to incorporate.
  • Pour mixture onto an un-greased cookie sheet, breaking up large clumps with your fingers. Bake 10-13 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly; break up any remaining big pieces to achieve a crumbly consistency.

For manchego cheese ice cream:

  • Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy; set aside.
  • Combine cream, half and half, and vanilla bean in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a simmer. Slowly ladle 1 cup hot cream mixture into egg yolks, whisking constantly. Pour egg-cream mixture back into the saucepan, and cook about 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Pour mixture into a large bowl.
  • Add cheese cubes and stir. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Once cooled, pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Discard cheese and vanilla bean. Refrigerate custard until cold, then freeze in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

To serve your apple crisp:

  • Spoon apple filling into serving dish and sprinkle with crumble topping.
  • Serve with a scoop of Manchego cheese ice cream on the side.

Enjoy!
