Recipe: Sauteed Apples a la Mode
I was in the mood for something apple pie-ish the other night, but didn't want the crust from a pie. I also didn't want to wait for something to bake; I needed immediate gratification. So I essentially cooked up something reminiscent of a pie filling, and I plopped an incredibly generous scoop of butter pecan ice cream on top of it.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 Honeycrisp apples, cored, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch dice
- 1/2 cup caramel ice cream sauce
- 2 scoops butter pecan ice cream
In a medium skillet, melt the butter and the vanilla together over medium heat. Add the apples and stir to coat them with the butter. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, until the apples are just tender. Uncover the skillet and stir in the caramel sauce; cook for 1 minute.
Divide the apples among 2 serving dishes and top with the ice cream. Serve immediately.
