 Spiced Apple Dessert
Drizzled with warm caramel sauce, this classic and comforting, old-fashioned dessert is an heirloom recipe. “It was passed down from my Great-Aunt Syd,” writes Anne Livingston from Evanston, Illinois. “It’s so good in wintertime and no one ever guesses it’s as light as it is!” TASTY TIP Chopped pecans make an easy but elegant substitute in this recipe.
