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'.
