Apple a' la Mode

It is a good thing my kids love apples so much. I never did get around to making dehydrated apple pie slices with the apples we harvested this year (thanks to generous friends and neighbors).

It was Nathan's turn to cook dinner tonight and since it was a special night, he also made a yummy apple treat for dessert.

First he started with Canadian Maple Syrup topping: 1/2 stick butter + 1/2 cup pure maple syrup = a good for you caramel topping.

Let the butter melt while you peel, core and slice about 4 apples.

Then sprinkle them with sugar. . .

and a little cinnamon.

Toss to coat evenly and simmer until fork tender. While you are waiting for the apples to cook, bring the syrup to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Then let it cool so it will thicken a little and not run all over the cone like ours did.

Layer in a waffle cone with vanilla ice cream (the a' la mode part). Begin with apples, drizzle the maple syrup topping over, add a scoop of ice cream and repeat. End with the maple syrup topping.

We got this idea from the waffle cone box. Very simple. Simply good.


  1. I had to work late and this stuff looks awesome! When I arrived home the kids had already ravenously inhaled it. If I had printed out the great pictures 'Chel had done then I am sure they would have some flavor to them as well since they are such great pictures! Great job yet again, my dear wife!
