    I read these directions over and over and over. #%@&% Then I discovered a Susan Lester Post on Create Amazing Meals and found she made this over a year ago. Viola. Clarity. Thanks, Susan. (Lousy name for a delicious dessert.)

      Thank you, Mary! I should have posted in P & Q. And, I agree – they should have a better name because they’re so good!

    My link earlier this morning seemed to have dissapeared. I’ll try it again:

    Hopefully I will get to the apples at work today and be able to do the post tonight but I did make baguettes yesterday so I’m not totally lazy.

    These apples tasted great, but I did have a problem with the plastic wrap! I will be making them again without the wrap :)

    My plastic didn’t melt. These have possibilities, though I didn’t love on the first try. Happy Friday!

    The melted plastic wrap ruined this apple project. Without the plastic, it appears that this apple dish would have been lovely.

    I actually made this again last night after I wrote my post and had the one apple’s worth for breakfast this morning. YUM!

    (but yeah, the plastic melts)

    We loved these – I made them last November when we had a “Cook’s Choice.”

    Here’s mine:
    I was kind of underwhelmed, but I used parchment instead of plastic wrap, so no worries there!

    Not sure how Nana’s wrap didn’t melt, but mine sure did !!

    “Pommes Confites” and a touch of spring…

  16. Candy January 11, 2013 at 2:00 PM #

    tasty… my wrap kind of “shredded”…

    Yummy apples! My plastic did not melt although it shrank up tight around the ramekins.

    It has been awhile since I have joined in. Hi all!

    I had to skip this week because of water issues. That finally got resolved this afternoon (three plumbers said they didn’t have time for it today – the guy who finally fixed it did it in 15 minutes.). But now I need the oven for dinner! I’ll try making the apples tomorrow – they look too good to pass up!

    Used parchment underwrap instead of plastic — thanks for the tips, Doristas. (I agree…melted plastic tends to take something away from a beautiful fruit dessert…why would Dorie do this?? Is an extra tight seal supposed to do some kind of sous-vide on the apple slices?) Anyway, parchment under, foil over, holes poked in, set on parchment lined sheet pan. Organic ambrosia apples, tried coconut palm sugar in one — yummy!

      Amy I just wanted to let you know that I can’t leave a comment since you only allow comments from Google account holders… could you open it up to Open ID users as well please?

      Otherwise, your apples look great! I havent heard of coconut palm sugar and it sounds delicious!

    Although long, it’s pretty delicious!

    These were simply divine! Joining in very late (I just received the book!) So happy to at least work on some of the recipes with the group.

    I must have a new addition, because this recipe mentions nothing of plastic wrap but only of parchment and foil. Hmmm. Curious!

    Can’t wait to check out everyone’s posts!

    They must be really delicious can’t wait to try them!!

    I took a long and slow time getting around to this one…but it was worth it.

    […] I’m curious to see what choices the rest of the Doristas made when they wrapped these for the oven. You can find their links here: […]
