Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Roasted Apples

Roasted apples have been a popular dessert in American cuisine for centuries. It was a common way to preserve apples before refrigeration was widely available. The dish was often served during fall and winter months when apples were in season. With the invention of the air fryer, this classic dessert can now be made in a healthier and quicker way.
