Baked Apples with Brown Sugar

Great comfort food. Best to make fresh but you can prepare the apples well ahead of time and just refrigerate until ready to bake. They'll brown up a little bit from exposure to air but that won't matter once they're cooked, all bubbly, brown and delicious.

2 to 3 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons light brown sugar

Creamy Custard Sauce:

1/2 pint light vanilla ice cream, melted (recommended: Ben and Jerry's)

2 egg yolks

Creamy Custard Sauce:

  1. Heat the melted ice cream in a small saucepan over low heat until hot. Meanwhile, put the yolks in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. While whisking, slowly drizzle about 1 or 2 tablespoons hot melted ice cream into the yolks until blended. While whisking constantly, slowly add the rest of the hot liquid to the yolk mixture. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and return to low heat.
