Well, you new I couldnt resist another fall blog. One of the first things I think about when fall arrives is baking, which when trying to loose some lbs. is a fine science. So I started browsing Country Livings web site for fall recipes and found this wonderful Caramel Apples recipe. I havent tried this before, but really want to try it this fall. Of coarse, the calorie content is a sin, one apple is 1/2 a days worth of calories. All the more reason to grab some celaphane and some pretty raffia or ribbon and make gifts out of them. Or serve them on a cake stand at a get together to serve or send home with guests. Anyway you choose to do it, they are sure to be delicious. The recipe is below. Will you try it? Recipe taken from Country Living (link to site on side bar) (makes 12) 12 crisp apples 1 1/3 cups dark corn syrup 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar 1 1/3 cups light brown sugar 1 1/3 cups heavy cream 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons butter 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract Line a baking pan with a generously oiled sheet of parchment paper. Push a candy apple stick into the core of each apple. Combine the syrup, sugars, heavy cream, and salt in a large saucepan over medium0high heat. Simmer until the mixture reaches 270°F – about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the butter and vanilla. Let cool for 6 to 8 minuets, until caramel thickens to a toffee like consistency. Dip and gently swirl the apples into the caramel and place on the prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely.
