My hubby is a great cook. He's always coming up with creative dishes to tantalize my palette. The other day, he surprised me with a special twist on baked apples. It was so delish, I thought I'd share his recipe (which I had to wheedle out of him)...just in time for Thanksgiving.
Alter to your taste. He certainly would. :)
~Enjoy! And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
