The recipe doesn't say when to add the cointreau or orange slices, so I wrote to bluemoon and asked her about it. She suggested that the orange sections be tossed without microwaving to the already cooked apples and that the cointreau be added to the sauce just before pouring it over the fruit. This is what I did and this came out very yummy, especially since cointreau is one of my favorite liqueurs. How great that a terrific dessert like this is so low-calorie! Thanks for sharing, bluemoon!
Delicious warm...equally good chilled! The tart apples with the sweet strawberries...yum! I'll be making this again.
I also took Sydney Mikes advice, and this was a wonderful treat for dessert tonight. Seeing I live near the largest apple orchard in the midwest, I went out to pick apples, got the flu, oh well. Nevertheless, this was easy to make, and prepare and was exceptionally good. Will definately keep this one. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
Made this without the Cointreau, & had a great mid-morning treat! Another time this will definitely be made as a dessert for guests! Thanks for a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
Scaled this down to 1 serving, just for me. A delicious recipe. Followed echo echo's instructions as to when to add the orange slices and cointreau. A very nice dessert, and extremely easy to make - good for you, too!
