Apple Shortbread Crisp

I seriously think this was one of the best things I have ever tasted! You must make it! Now!

You will need:
2 (12-ounce) packages frozen apple chunks (I used Stouffer's Harvest Apples)
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
20 shortbread cookies, crushed (I used Keebler Sandies Simply Shortbread)
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
vanilla ice cream

1. Prick plastic wrap covering apple chunks several times with a fork; microwave at Medium 7 minutes or until apple is thawed. Let stand 2 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium hear; add cookie crumbs and nuts. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg.


3. Combine 2 tablespoons brown sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle in a lightly greased 1-quart baking dish. Sprinkle half of apple over brown sugar mixture; top with half of the cookie crumb mixture. Repeat layers with remaining apple and crumb mixture.

4. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until cookie mixture is golden.
5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
