Apple Pie Sundaes

I was watching Rachael Ray this morning and she had promised to show Regis how to make a dessert that she had never made before. She made Apple Pie Sundaes!  As soon as the episode ended, I popped over to her site to get the recipe!


Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 Honeycrisp apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • A few grates fresh nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup brownulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brandy or Calvados
  • 8 palmier (elephant ear) cookies
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Caramel sauce, warmed or in a squeeze bottle
  • 1 cup homemade or store-bought whipped cream

Directions:

  1. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter and add the apples, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and lemon juice. Cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes. 
  2. Stir the brownulated sugar and brandy into the apples, tip the pan away from you and carefully light on fire with a long lighter. Let the alcohol cook off, about 1 minute.
  3. In a bowl, layer apples, a palmier cookie, a scoop of ice cream, another palmier cookie, a drizzle of caramel sauce and some whipped cream.

Serves 4
