Ingredients:

• 3 egg yolks 
• 2 tablespoons Michele Honey Crème Syrup
• 1/2 cup sweet wine, such as marsala 
• 1 cup heavy cream

For baked apples
• 4 -6 fresh apples, use your favorite baking apples 
• 3 tablespoons soft butter
• 1/4 cup brown sugar

 
Directions:

For sauce:
Beat egg yolks and honey crème syrup until light and frothy, about 10 minutes.
Reduce speed; mix in wine.
Transfer mixture to double boiler and stir constantly over moderate heat until custard thickens and feels heavy. It should coat the back of a spoon thickly.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET THE MIXTURE BOIL!
Remove from heat, cool to room temperature; chill to cool completely.
Whip cream until it reaches soft peaks, then fold into cold sauce. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
To bake apples: Preheat oven to 350°F.
Slice top third off each apple, leaving stems intact; remove cores.
Push butter into core cavities and rub some onto skins. Place apples in baking dish; sprinkle with sugar, pushing some sugar into cavity of each. Replace tops; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Bake 35-40 minutes until apples are tender. Cool to room temperature; serve with dollop of sauce between apples and tops.
