APPLE CARAMEL DESSERT from: Good Housekeeping Illustrated Microwave Cookbook serves 6 3/4 cup all purpose flour 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons shortening 5 tablespoons butter or margarine, chilled 2-3 tablespoons ice water 4 tablespoons sugar 3 tablespoons cold water 8 small apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced Ice Cream or Heavy or whipping cream 9" broiler safe pie plate In food processor , process flour, dark brown sugar, and cinnmon until blended. Add shortening and 3 tablespoons chilled butter or margarine. Process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs or use plastry blender or fingertips. Into mixture sprinkle 2 tablespoons ice water. With pulsing motion, process just until mixture begins to hold together. If necessary, add another tablespoon of ice water. Do not over process or mixture will be tough. Shape into ball. Flatten slightly, wrap in waxed paper and refridgerate 30 minutes. Prepare caramel. In pie plate, Place remaining butter . Heat, covered with paper towel on HIGH (100%power) 45 seconds, or until melted. Stir in sugar and cold water. Cook on HIGH 6-9 Minutes, without stirring. Just until mixture turns golden, watching carefully since caramel burns easily and continues to cook and darken when removed from oven. (I check this every 2 minutes). Remove pie plate from oven. Stir caramel once to distribute color evenly. In caramel, carefull arrange apple slices in concentric circles (there will be enough for 2-3 layers) On lightly floured surgace, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 9 inch round, 1/4 inch thick. Place on top of apples. Cook on HIGH 7-10 minutes, until surface looks dry. Lightly brown under preheated broiler. Let stand on heat safe surface 5 minutes. With knife, loosen dessert from side of pie plate. Invert pie plate on to serving platter. Carefully remove pie plate to unmold dessert. With rubber spatula, loosen any slices sticking to pie plate. Place on top of dessert. Serve warm or cover and chill to serve later. I like this warm with a scoop of vanilla icecream or cold with sweetened whipped cream or fruit sauce.
