Two Allison’s & an Apple

Our Fall Garden Swap was hosted in a beautifully restored Cape Cod home custom built in 1948 by Allison Honer, a famed local architect.  The theme was Pumpkins! and our host & neighbors fully embraced the challenge: Bring a pumpkin/fall inspired dish to share.  From the delightfully updated kitchen containing original cabinetry with rounded corners and a large farm house sink came a delightful pumpkin casserole.  Just outside the dining room was a lovely hand painted patio, where friends and neighbors piled fall inspired desserts, with at least 4 different pumpkin breads!  In the midst of the plethora of pumpkin breads was a large round platter, surrounded by apple slices.  Another Allison had brought it.  Curious, I dipped an apple slice into what appeared to be a caramel sauce, and found a creamy dip underneath!  Imagine a deconstructed caramel apple… so. very. good.  So easy too… you don’t even have to wait for fall to enjoy this one!

With a hand held mixer, blend together the cream cheese & powdered sugar.  Put in the middle of a platter or medium bowl and top generously with caramel sauce.  Sprinkle with heath bar pieces.  Put sliced apples around the cream cheese for dipping.
