Pieless Apples

SO YOU FEEL like having some apple pie for dessert.  But you didn't bake one or buy one.  You do have a few apples lying around.  Everyone one does since Eve.  Here's a recipe for a crustless pie...OK, it's really just broiled apples, but the taste sensation's the same.  And no crumbs. 

6 firm apples, (MacIntosh, or Rome Beauties), peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tbls. sweet butter, melted
3/4 cups sugar 
1/2 cup maple syrup
Vanilla ice cream

Heat broiler.  Toss the apples with the lemon juice, butter, and all but 2 tbls. of sugar.
Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer.  Broil about 8 inches from the heat for about 10 min., or until tender.

Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbls. of sugar and broil until melted.

Heat the maple syrup in a small saucepan over low heat.
Serve the apples warm with the ice cream.  Drizzle with the syrup.

About 7-8 servings.

For a nice wine, choose a medium bodied Riesling to go with this almost Pie a la Mode'.

Chocolate next week!!
