Apple Rum Duff

I cherish anything that is handwritten by Mom. I've even saved her little scraps of paper that label bags of Christmas decorations, bulbs that went in glass containers to decorate various rooms. This one sounds like a terrific dessert to use after a Christmas or winter dinner. I love her characteristic misspellings on this card. It makes me smile.

2 cups applesauce
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons rum (the darker the better)
1 Tablespoon grated orange rind
2 cups broken ginger snaps
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped just before serving the dish
Chopped Pistachios
Raspberries to garnish

  1. Combine applesauce, sugar, rum, orange rind, and gingersnaps. 
  2. Stir until well mixed. 
  3. Chill!
  4. Just before serving, fold in whipped cream. 
  5. Put mixture into sherbert glasses (size shown below in what we call a Summer wine glass). 
  6. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and garnish with a raspberry. 
  7. Serve and savor!
