Leslie in Texas's Note:
Baked apples are an overlooked dessert, in my opinion. These are served with a delicious sauce made with the liquid from the pan the apples were baking in. The apples and sauce may be made ahead and gently reheated before serving. From an October 1884 Bon Appetit from an article featuring Indian Summer Menus.Dark rum,cognac or scotch may be substituted for the bourbon.
