    twissis's Note:

    From *The Carnival Experience* by Peter Leypold ( Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines), here's another French recipe using the humble apple to create an amazingly low-cal & low-fat, but elegant finish for an otherwise heavy meal. My sweet-tooth DH would want a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt w/this, so feel free to indulge that request as desired. (Times have been estimated) *Enjoy* !

      TOTALLY off the scale and divine! Not hard to achieve as I am a REAL Calvados lover, and this recipe was SO easy and yet the results were sophisticated and elegant! A confession, to achieve full apple blast off, and because I had half a bottle in the fridge, I poached these apples in CIDER and calvados!! Everything else was as posted, with the small exception of almonds - went to the cupboard and it was bare of almonds.......oh well, I garnished the apples with low fat cream (!!) and a cinnamon stick. Made for Holiday and Prop it Up - merci darlink! A KEEPER for me! FT:-)
