apples, cored, each cut into 16 wedges
brown sugar, firmly packed
apple cider or apple juice
pumpkin pie spice
light vanilla bean ice cream
caramel topping, from a jar
Toasted sliced almonds, optional
- Add apples, brown sugar, apple cider, and pumpkin pie spice to a medium sized microwave-safe dish (with lid). Toss the ingredients to coat the apples well. Add lid and microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes, or until apples are nice and tender.
- Add a scoop of ice cream to 6 ice-cream serving bowls. Spoon a serving of the apple mixture around or over each scoop of ice cream and drizzle a tablespoon of caramel topping over the top of each serving. Sprinkle a heaping teaspoon of toasted sliced almonds in the middle of each for garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.
