READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by twissis

Still sharing my treasure trove of old recipes recently found again. As w/most of the others, the original source has been lost w/the passage of time. This sounds so good to me, is an amazing quick-fix & can be served hot or cold in several ways to create a lovely dessert. Enjoy!

These are the best apples we have had yet! I used Red Delicious apples and didnt have brandy or cognac so substituted apple cider. Didnt add the pecans because I served this along side pork chops and baked potatoes. So good warm and cant wait to make these for dessert! Thank you twissis for the wonderful recipe.
