DIRECTIONS

  • For sauce:
  • Beat egg yolks and honey until light and frothy, about 10 minutes.
  • Reduce speed; mix in wine.
  • Transfer mixture to double boiler and stir constantly over moderate heat until custard thickens and feels heavy. It should coat the back of a spoon thickly.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET THE MIXTURE BOIL!
  • Remove from heat, cool to room temperature; chill to cool completely.
  • Whip cream until it reaches soft peaks, then fold into cold sauce. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
  • To bake apples: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Slice top third off each apple, leaving stems intact; remove cores.
  • Push butter into core cavities and rub some onto skins. Place apples in baking dish; sprinkle with sugar, pushing some sugar into cavity of each. Replace tops; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes until apples are tender. Cool to room temperature; serve with dollop of sauce between apples and tops.
