YUM!! I couldn't find my corer, so I halved the apples & proceeded. I ended up using less butter & brown sugar than listed (about 1TB butter total & 1tsp brown sugar total). They were cooked in about 5 minutes!! Delicious but not quite the same as baked apples. The whipped cream was phenomenal. Even THE PICKY ONE who 'doesn't like almonds' went nuts for it, lol. Heh heh heh. Well done! Made for PAC Fall '07.
