    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Another quick and easy recipe – how useful they are! – I’m adding in the eleventh hour before the 2005 Let’s Get Fresh and SWAP - Recipe Swap because I couldn’t find anything like it on ZAAR. This is my adaptation of one of Huey's recipes. Iain Hewitson is an Australian cook, better known as Huey, who runs Tolarno’s restaurant in Melbourne and hosts a popular TV cooking show. He is also the author of several cooking books. If serving for breakfast or brunch, you may want to omit the Cointreau.

      The recipe doesn't say when to add the cointreau or orange slices, so I wrote to bluemoon and asked her about it. She suggested that the orange sections be tossed without microwaving to the already cooked apples and that the cointreau be added to the sauce just before pouring it over the fruit. This is what I did and this came out very yummy, especially since cointreau is one of my favorite liqueurs. How great that a terrific dessert like this is so low-calorie! Thanks for sharing, bluemoon!

      I also took Sydney Mikes advice, and this was a wonderful treat for dessert tonight. Seeing I live near the largest apple orchard in the midwest, I went out to pick apples, got the flu, oh well. Nevertheless, this was easy to make, and prepare and was exceptionally good. Will definately keep this one. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
