Core Spices and Flavorings -
1 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Other Ingredients -
4 medium apples - peeled and cut into small cubes
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups ground graham crackers
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add graham crackers and 1 cup of ricotta cheese in a bowl and mix (using the hands is the preferred method) until well blended.
Transfer this mixture into a greased small to medium sized baking pan and press it down since this will serve as the base of our apple sandesh pie.
Add apples, brown sugar, butter and ground cardamom to a medium sized pan and cook over medium heat for about 7 minutes or until the apples are slightly tender and the ingredients are mixed well together.
Now pour the apple mixture into the baking pan, over the graham cracker and ricotta base.
Spread it out evenly.
Put dollops of the remaining ricotta cheese on the top of the apple mixture (kind of like how they do it on a Margarita pizza).
