A few snaps from our weekend…

Playing with pumpkins…

Walking the now barren and brown fields behind our home…

Grilled pizza for supper and roasted apple sundaes for dessert…

I have a confession to make.  This is not the first time I’ve posted about these apple sundaes.  In fact, it was just about this time last year that I shared them.  Some things are just too good to only share once, right?  After making these sundaes for the first time last October, they quickly became a staple in our fall dessert rotation.  The recipe for roasted apples comes from one of my favorite blogs, Not Without Salt.  A scoop of vanilla bean ice cream easily became their vehicle for delivery, along with a drizzle of caramel sauce and a few toasted pecans.

This year, I roasted chunks of pears along with the apples.  After the first bite I found myself saying a prayer of thanks for the creation of pears (I sometimes do things like that) and then devoured the entire bowl.

Roasted Apple Sundaes

Ingredients

  • Roasted Apple (and Pear) Sundaes
  • only slightly adapted from Not Without Salt
  • 4 large apples (2 lbs), peeled and cut in 1” chunks (I used 2 apples and 2 pears as a variation)
  • 1 3” cinnamon stick
  • ½ vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a roasting pan. Dot the apples/pears with small pieces of the butter. Roast 50-60 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes until cooked through and golden around the edges.
  3. Serve warm, atop vanilla bean ice cream, drizzled with caramel sauce and toasted pecans.

    This recipe is most definitely good enough to share again; I love the combination of warm and cold. It sounds just perfect for fall.

    I love that you’ve posted about apple sundaes again because I somehow missed your post last year. I’ve just pinned it to ensure I don’t forget to try it this year!

  3. This sounds amazing!! I love fall – the colors, the weather and, of course, the food. :)

      Staci, it’s by far one of our favorite fall desserts. Just a close second to apple crisp.
