    Bev's Note:

    A simple and homey dessert that is always satisfying as well as guilt-free. In Belgium, a baked apple is a traditional accompaniment to many pork and game dishes. But if you feel extravagant, you can transform the simple baked apples into a special dessert by serving them with Creme Anglaise (see recipe I posted). From Everybody Eats Well in Belgium.

      Wow! Who would ever think that such a simple recipe could be so tasty? The flavors are fabulous. I added the raisins (soaked in dark rum), and the nuts, which gave texture and a little more complexity. I used McIntosh apples (my favorite) and they held their firmness very well. While they were still warm we used a little Fat Free Half & Half on them, which is an old Southern way of eating a lot of desserts. Fantastic! Definately a repeat dessert. Bev, you came through for me again! James and I thank you! :-)
