Here is a yummy way to use those apples you got at the farmer's market or your back yard. The kids love this treat and it is somewhat healthier than many other desserts.
If you are concerned about putting wine in the recipe, be aware that the alcohol will cook away. All that is left from the wine is flavor. You may omit if you like.
