Gentle Readers, sometimes one realizes that summer is over, there are ice cream cones in the cabinet taking up space, and a serving or two of ice cream left in the freezer. How to transform this into a autumn-a-licious treat? Never fear, The Practical Cook is here, ready to Punt! dessert.
Apple Pie a la Mode in a Cone Recipe
Okay, perhaps “recipe” is extremely generous in this context. You’ll need cooked apples, for which you could use apple pie filling in a can, but it’s an easy make-at-home. Peel, core, dice apples, cook with a bit of butter, sugar, and cinnamon (even in the microwave, if you must). Use a mini marshmallow as a stopper in the bottom of a standard issue ice cream cone. Add apple filling almost to the top. Top with a small scoop of ice dream. Sprinkle chopped pecans on the top (optional, yet delicious).
Memories of summer, tastes of fall.
What’s your Punt! dessert of choice these days? Post a comment, send a tweet, or bake me some cookie. (Well, the latter was worth a try. The Practical Cook does adore cookies.)
