This recipe rates on the high end of 4 stars. First, I cut the recipe down to one serving. I skipped adding pistachios to the whipping cream and instead replaced the pistachios with about 1/4 teaspoon rose water. The apples, whole cloves, part of a cinnamon stick, ground cardamom and unbleached sugar were added to the pan and cooked as indicated. Next, I increased the heat to medium-low and warmed the spices with the apples. Next, I increased the heat to medium and finished caramelizing the apples for about 5 minutes then reducing the heat further to medium-low to avoid burning the mixture. If you were to cook the apples and nuts as indicated in the recipe, they would all burn. I chose only one nut to showcase in this recipe-the others were redundant and took away from the simplicity of the recipe. This is easy and elegant and in less than 20 minutes I had a delicious dessert! Reviewed for Help a Naked Recipe.
