Serves 4 to 6

1 cup Diamond Sliced Almonds
4 slices day-old sandwich bread, or 6 thin slices baguette, buttered on both
sides and cut into 2 inch squares
2 cups heavy cream or half and half
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
cup packed brown sugar
4 medium (Golden Delicious, Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith) apples, peeled, cored,
and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
1 cup dried cranberries, optional

Preheat oven to 350. To toast almonds, spread evenly on a baking sheet or in
a shallow pan. Bake, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and
fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes.
Butter base and sides of a 2 - or 3-quart gratin dish. In a large bowl
whisk together cream, egg, vanilla, and brown sugar. Add apples, almonds,
bread and optional cranberries toss to coat. Spread mixture as evenly as
possible into the pan.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until apples are very tender. Serve hot, warm or
at room temperature.
Serves 4 to 6
