Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Give him ramen noodles, and you don’t have to teach him anything.

Recipe By : Taste of Home Oct/Nov '96 If you can't find Rome Beauty apples, Macintosh, Cortland, Honey Crisp, or Jonathans would be equally good.
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 c hot water
4 lg Rome Beauty apples -- cored
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 c whipping cream
Combine brown sugar and water in an 8-in. square baking dish. Peel the
top half of each apple; brush with lemon juice. Place in the baking
dish. Fill each with three caramels. Bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes or
until apples are tender, basting every 20 minutes. Carefully lift
apples, allowing any caramel in centers to drip into pan, and place in
individual dessert dishes. Pour sauce into a small saucepan; add
cream. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until sauce is smooth and
thick. Spoon over apples; serve immediately.
