Why Granny Smith Apples?
My go-to apple variety for baked goods are Granny Smith apples. They have the perfect balance of tart and sweet and hold their structure under heat. This is important because we don't want a soggy disaster after baking! If you can't find Granny Smith, other great baking varieties include Honeycrisp, Crispin (or Mutsu) and Pink Lady.
What is Cardamom?
Cardamom is a spice recognized by its green pods. It has an herbal warmth like allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg and fragrant notes like mint, pepper and fennel. It instantly brings sweetness, warmth and grounding to any recipe.
