Apple Pie Parfaits

Simple yet so delish, served warmed or chilled.

 Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes

 3 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced small
(I used Macintosh apples)
 1 tablespoon  butter
 3 tablespoons brown sugar
 1 teaspoon cinnamon
 pinch salt
 1 stick butter, melted
 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium non-stick pan, over medium-high heat,
melt butter and saute apples for 4 - 5 minutes.
Add in brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Transfer to a  bowl to cool.
In another medium non-stick pan, over medium-high
heat, melt butter, 
combine the melted butter and graham crackers crumbs.
Press graham cracker crumbs  into the bottom of your dishes.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on high, whip cream, sugar, and 
vanilla until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.

Evenly distribute the apple mixture and whipped cream, alternating layers, among 4 dessert cups. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon. I've also topped them with crushed walnuts.
