This simple, seasonal recipe is made in the slow cooker, so hands-on time is minimal, making the extra effort for homemade apple compote worth it for the superior flavor and texture over storebought. Tart apples such as Granny Smith, Pink Lady, or Macintosh hold up well in this preparation.

As a dessert, serve the healthy compote warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and crisp gingersnap cookies. Or, if you are feeling especially creative, skip the embellishments and serve the sweet apples over savory pork chops. Either way, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Cinnamon Chips with Apple Berry SalsaIt’s that time of year again: back-to-school. It seems to come faster and faster each year. Beach towels and picnic baskets are being traded for backpacks and lunchboxes. Moms everywhere are stocking up not only  on pencils and paper but also on lunchbox ideas and after-school snacks. Because no matter how busy we are, we know our kids come home from school HUNGRY!

It’s hard to top the classic cookies and milk as an after-school snack, but with school starting while temperatures are still HOT in many places, no one gets excited about heating up their kitchens or full-sized ovens. Cinnamon chips with fruit salsa is a fast and easy snack idea that’s ready in less than 30 minutes, no oven needed (just a toaster oven). More importantly, kids LOVE it.

Cinnamon Chips with Apple Berry Salsa

Toaster ovens are great for making small batch snacks, like these cinnamon chips. Brush flour tortillas with melted butter, about 1 tablespoon for 2 tortillas. Sprinkle each tortilla with cinnamon sugar, about 1 tablespoon of sugar combined with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, so it sticks to the butter. Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into 8 wedges.

Heat the toaster oven to 350°F, then bake the chips with the rack in the lowest position in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

Cinnamon Chips with Apple Berry Salsa

While the chips are baking, dice 1 apple and 2 cups of strawberries. Mix with 1 cup of raspberries and 1–2 tablespoons of sugar, depending on the sweetness of the berries. Add chopped fresh mint just before serving.

Note: If you don’t have a toaster oven, the chips could be baked in a conventional oven at 350°F for 8–10 minutes.

The toaster oven baking pan will fit one large or two small tortillas, enough for one person. The salsa is best eaten fresh, but it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Some kids may not get excited about fruit as an after-school snack, but when you add homemade cinnamon chips, it is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
