Today was the day for posting our entries to Sugar High Fridays # 2:Apples!, the cavity inducing monthly event created by Jennifer from Domestic Goddess. And just like last month, I was caught in a bind. I had all intentions to cook or bake something. It was between my friend Alfie's suggested recipe for Tarte Tatin, Apple-Cranberry Conserve or one of my mother's recipes.
However, I would be working all day and had just enough time after work to come home, take a shower and get ready for the ballet . But, I wanted to participate in some way so I did what I could and to put together something appley and sweet for a snack on the one chance I had midday to get home and grab a bite for lunch.
I fixed myself a plate of Honey Crisp Apple wedges (more on this amazing apple later) and got out the jar of La Salamandra Dulce De Leche from the refrigerator, shoveled out a couple tablespoons of this heavenly treat (even better slightly warm) and sat down to eat it for lunch.
This is an amazingly decadent yet healthy dessert or snack option good for when you crave something fruity, light and refreshing, yet must have a sweet and luscious contrasting flavor. The apple's crunch and cider-like taste complemented by the silky smooth and creamy sweet goodness of the dulce de leche.
You'll forget you've ever liked Caramel apples when you try this. And since there is no need to bake or cook the fruit, it is a very quick endeavor. Just dip the apples in the Dulce De Leche, bite into the tasty morsel, close your eyes and enjoy!
