Green Meanies


Makes 8 servings


4 green apples
1 cup nut butter (cashew, almond or peanut butter)
Almond slivers


  1. Place apple, stem side up, on cutting board. Cut away 2 halves from sides of apple, leaving 1-inch-thick center slice with stem and core. Discard core slice. Cut each half round in half. Then cut each apple quarter into two wedges using a crinkle cutter. Each apple will yield 8 wedges.
  2. Spread 2 teaspoons nut butter on wide edge of apple slice. Top with another crinkled edge apple slice, aligning crinkled edges to resemble jaws. Insert almond slivers to make fangs.


For best effect, use a crinkle cutter garnishing tool to create a toothy look.
