Honey-Caramel Ice Cream Sundaes with Apples

**found in the January 2011 Bon Appetit 

8 servings

1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp ground cardamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp butter
3 large golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, each cut into 8 wedges
3 tbsp packed golden brown sugar
Vanilla ice cream
toasted pecan halves (optional)

Sauce: Stir sugar, cream, butter, honey and 3 tbsp. water in heavy medium saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves.  Increase heat; bring syrup to boil.  Add spices, pinch of salt, and pinch of black pepper, shaking pan to blend.  Boil without stirring until sauce coats spoon, about 3 minutes.  Remove from  heat; stir in vanilla.

Do ahead: Can be made 1 week ahead.  Cool, cover and chill.  Re-warm before using.

Apples:  Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add apples; sprinkle with sugar.  Saute apples until tender and brown in spots, about 12 minutes.  

Scoop ice cream into dishes.  Top with sauce, apples, and pecans, if using.

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
