Apple Pie in a Goblet

"This dish is not only easy but very elegant," relates Renee Zimmer of Gig Harbor, Washington. "I got the recipe from a church cooking class and now fix it often, with rave reviews. You can serve it in bowls, but I always get more oohs and aahs when I put it in lovely goblets."

    Everyone who has had this recipe is in heaven. They all request it time and time again. I have already been asked to make it for Thanksgiving by my grandchildren. The one thing that I changed is the cinnamon. I use Saigon cinnamon found in your grocery store. It has also been a hit for the apple pie I make. The Saigon cinnamon is a star!!!!

    it cools quickly, it's like a hot fudge sundae but with apples! honestly, why do we ever need apple pie again?

    Cyndy Rogers, let the filling cool to warm then add the ice cream. You should have no problems.

    my common sense tells me to let apple mixture cool to just warm before putting in glasses.

    This may sound weird, but is there a risk of thermal shock? I am worried that putting HOT apples and COLD ice cream together in a glass - I want to use Libby Parfait glasses as I think they will look spectacular - might make the glasses crack. What do you think?
