    Tonight's dessert.

    Tonight's dessert was baked, brandied apples, pears and pear apples (hybrid between a pear and an apple). Since my wife's sick and I'm the chief cook and bottle washer I thought I 'd try something different for dessert tonight and it turned out great.. in fact delicious!!
    I took 2 Gala apples, 2 apple pears and 1 bartlet pear; cored and washed the unpeeled fruit; filled up the core openings with a 3 to 1 mixture of sugar and cinnamin and Approx. 1 Tbsp. of brandy.
    then placed on a greased baking pan and baked at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
    Since my wife is diabetic and I'm on the borderline I used Splenda, where 1 cup equals a cup of sugar and tastes as good without calories.

    I let them set in the oven till it had cooled off and the mixture had caramelized where the only thing missing was a dollop of whipped cream.

    When we were kids, mom would take apples, core them, pack the center with brown sugar, and top them with a dollop of butter. She'd then put them in the microwave for a while, and as we'd watch them, the butter would melt, then the brown sugar would erupt out the top and cascade down the sides, making 'Volcano Apples' - one of our favorite desserts.

    Sounds good, but you're Mom forgot to put in the brandy.

    Also,I like to use wine, brandy and rum in cooking, as the alcohol evaporates during cooking and enhances the flavor of everything from pastas to casseroles, meat and desserts.
