Perfect Fall Treat: Drunken Apples

I patiently wait all summer for apple season, and while I’m excited that it’s finally here, I’m a bit melancholy about the whole snow thing still. I mean, why look forward to cold, freezing temperatures and the death of my garden when I am in the middle of a green and lush yard and perfect, 70-degree weather, right?

Instead, I choose to embrace these fleeting warm days and bake up a few apples with a bit of rum to make a decadent sauce that pairs well over ice cream, you know, while it’s still warm enough to enjoy ice cream outside.


Drunken Apples

4 tart baking apples
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons dark rum (or brandy or bourbon)

Core and slice apples into thin wedges. Place slices in a small baking dish and cover with foil. Sprinkle the sugars, cinnamon and drizzle rum over the apples.

Place the dish into a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes. Carefully uncover and stir. Recover with the foil and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Serve alongside barbecue or as a dessert over ice cream.
