This is a Paulette Mitchell recipe I found at a local TV station's website. It sounds delicious and I did not want to lose it. Let me know if you try it before I do!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the sugar; stir for about a minute or until it begins to melt.
  3. Add the apples. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the apples are tender and the butter is lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, put the cranberries in a small, microwave-safe custard cup with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with waxed paper and microwave on High for 1-1/2 minutes or until the cranberries are softened. Drain any remaining water.
  5. Stir the half-and-half, vanilla, and softened cranverries into the apples.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  7. Serve warm in small dessert bowls, or over vanilla ice cream or spice cake. Garnish with ground nutmeg.

I found myself wishing that I had used half the ask for sweetening but DH thought it was perfect, so it just goes down to personal taste on that score. I loved the apples soft but firm texture and the cream was wonderful. I put it on top of caramel pudding for a great dessert that was quick and so simple.

VERY NICE ~ delicious flavor and easy to make. Served over angel food cake ~ makes a very flavorful addition. The ground nutmeg really finishes this sauce off well. Thanks LaLa Lola ~ made for PAC FALL 2009!
