3 Gala apples
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans

1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup whole milk (must use whole milk for recipe to work correctly)


Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 425 F. Butter muffin cups. Peel and core apples, then cut into 1/3-inch dice

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then cook apples, brown sugar, and lemon juice, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced to a glaze and apples are tender, 5-6 mins.

Stir in walnuts or pecans and divide apple mixture among muffin
