Dessert Apple Slices

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We had been gifted a large bowl of apples, along with a few onions and acorn squash. While the onions and squash are a bit straightforward; the apples have provided the opportunity for creativity in the kitchen. This led me to this next dish I am offering, Dessert Apple Slices.

I love apple pie, and that is precisely the problem, I do love it, and would eat the whole thing! But if I want to keep wearing my current clothes, I really don’t need to do. Just know, I would take one for the team, if I needed too…I am just the person to call on….

But my husband is not a lover of pie, he is an ice cream guy, all the way. So that created a conundrum for me, how do I get the enjoyment of apple pie without a pie? Let’s see, add an electric pressure cooker, a bit of sugar and cinnamon, and four minutes cooking time.

There is a bit of hands-on work, then a period of resting to allow the apples to juice out, followed by a 4-minute cooking time, then a 5-minute rest before opening up the valve. Plenty of time to make sure you have some honey sweetened vanilla yogurt and whipped cream…

Toss the apple slices with the sugar, let rest in the bowl to extract the natural juices from the apples (this will be your cooking liquid) about an hour. Stir in the salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Turn into the electric pressure cooker; attach the lid, set cooking time for four minutes.

Thick slices will hold their shape and not get mushy!
Note: to be honest, when I did this I was scared because I am a pressure cooker dummy concerned that there was not enough liquid to build up steam, but there is. And since the cook time is only 4 minutes, there is no chance of burning. When I opened the cooker after the 5 minute wait time, there was more liquid than when I started because the apples release more juice when cooked…

You can see the pooled up juices, by the spatula blade.

Let rest 5 minutes only, you want slices not sauce. Open the valve, remove lid when steam vent has emptied and turn your slices into a shallow bowl to finish cooling.
