DIRECTIONS

  • Whip the cream lightly in a bowl till it just holds its shape, but is not stiff at all.
  • Fold half of the pistachio nuts into the cream, cover and refrigerate.
  • Melt the butter over low heat in a large nonstick skillet. Take the pan off the heat.
  • Peel, core and slice the apples thinly, dropping the slices into the butter as you cut them.
  • Fold them into the butter as you go so that they do not discolor. (If you like, you could keep the pan over very low heat as you do this.).
  • Add the cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, sugar, almonds and walnuts.
  • Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring gently as you do so.
  • Turn the heat to high; cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring very gently now and then, till apples have caramelized lightly.
  • Serve on individual plates with a dollop of cream partially on, partially off the apples.
  • Sprinkle remaining pistachios over the cream.
