Sauteed Apples à la Mode + Giveaway Winner
So, who won the Hodgson Mill certificate that I offered as a giveaway last week???
Well, on Sunday morning at 8:05, I counted entries. I plugged numbers into Random.org's Sequence Generator, and out rolled #7. (Chris, of Nibble Me This, offered a great suggestion for capturing the results. But I don't use Firefox and I'm a Neoluddite technodolt, so we're still doing the cheap copy/paste method ... sorry!)

Here is your sequence:
And who is Seven, other than a character on "Star Trek: Voyager"???

I wish I had enough certificates to give to everyone, 'cause it would have been fun to play Santa! But alas ....
So now, on to the food!
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 ... because I'm worth it!
In about 10 minutes - less time than it would have taken me to drive to the grocery store to get my fix - I was able to create a warm, fragrant, homemade dessert featuring beautiful fall apples in a rich caramel sauce.
Is there anything better on a chilly evening?
Sauteed Apples à la Mode
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 Honeycrisp apples, cored, peeled, cut into 1/2" 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.
