Baked Apples and Cream

The last few days have been unseasonably warm here, we feel for every one up north with all the cold weather and snow. Nevertheless, we have been thinking of ice cream already, with temps in the 80’s its hard not to. We had some granny smith apples we needed to cook so I found this one-called apples and cream of course at the zarr. Of course my hubby wanted some ice cream to go with it.
This was very easy to make.
3-4 granny smith (we might try with Fuji next time) cut and peeled in 1/8 slices
About ¼ to ½ cup sugar(depends on size of apples)
Generous amount of cinnamon
Place in baking dish and dot with butter.
Bake in microwave on high for around 10 min till a fork inserts easily
Set aside
In sauce pan add
1 ½ tablespoon flour
¼ cup sugar
½ cup milk
Bring to a boil stirring constantly over a medium heat
The sauce will thicken, remove from heat and add
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pour over apples and sprinkle with cinnamon and you can add nutmeg if you like
We add it to ice cream.
