    These are the best apples we have had yet! I used Red Delicious apples and didnt have brandy or cognac so substituted apple cider. Didnt add the pecans because I served this along side pork chops and baked potatoes. So good warm and cant wait to make these for dessert! Thank you twissis for the wonderful recipe.

    Yum-O!! It doesn't get any simpler than this. We served this warm over French Vanilla ice cream - only problem was - the ice cream started melting, lol. But even that worked out well. Thanks twissis for another winner!

    Sinfully satisfying! I had some of this spooned over Ben & Jerry's Creme Brulee ice cream--so good, you would not believe. But it's also great just to spoon up by itself. I've only eaten it cold, so far; hopefully, hot is in my future. By the way, I didn't have cognac, but I did use brandy.
