Grilled Apple Parfait

The grilled apple parfait is a great way to bring in the wonderful flavors of fall. Yes, apples are in season and at their freshest. I plan on using them until spring. I’m the nontraditional type so I won’t be doing an apple pie fried or glazed. I’ve decided to go with gala and granny smith apples that were firm, ripe and ready to be devoured. Grilling them will bring out the natural sweetness and add a lovely smoke flavor. Also, adding some butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to make a sauce that’s finished with a flambé of crown royal apple then topped off with ice cream!

Grilled Apple Cooking Tips:

If you do not have a grill pan, sear the apples in a hot dry skillet. Igniting the liquor burns off the alcohol.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: After apples cool off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days max.

Reheating: Pop apples in a 350-degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
