If you can't find mascarpone cheese, use whipped cream cheese with a touch of sour cream mixed in to create the same flavor and consistency.

Ingredient Description:
For the fruit:
6 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into thin slices
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour

For the crisp topping:

8 oz. hazelnuts, chopped
3/4 c. oatmeal
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 stick of butter, softened plus 1 Tbsp. for prepping pots

For the mascarpone topping:
6 oz. mascarpone cheese
2 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. fresh lemon zest (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the fruit ingredients and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all of the crisp topping ingredients, making sure to completely incorporate the butter.
  4. In another medium bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, honey and lemon zest (optional) in a medium bowl.  Set aside.
