Prick plastic wrap covering apple chunks several times with a fork; microwave at medium power (50%) for 7 minutes or until apple is thawed. Let stand 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add cookie crumbs and walnuts. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg.
Combine 2 Tbsp. brown sugar and remaining 1/2 tsp. cinnamon; sprinkle in a lightly greased 1-quart baking dish. Sprinkle half of apple over brown sugar mixture; top with half of cookie crumb mixture. Repeat layers with remaining apple and crumb mixture. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Sharon This is really good with the stouffers apples but if you can't find them you could cook up your own apple chunks, I hope you'll try it God Bless!
