Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook apple with nutmeg until apple begins to soften, about 3 minutes.

Puree in a blender until smooth. If too thick to pour, stir in up to 1/2 cup more apple cider. Spoon the dessert sauce over pound cake or vanilla ice cream.

Delicious. I substituted Splenda for the sugar and it turned out wonderfully. Beautiful color and consistency. Very easy.
