Apple Pie Undone
As American as innovation, this version of the classic dessert pairs crisp and flaky piecrust cookies with a warm, velvety apple compote.
"Sweet sherry tastes like liquid raisin so it's the perfect flavor to compliment apple pie," says Marc Destito, director of the Sherry Council of America , who suggests following the Spanish tradition: pour a splash from your glass over vanilla ice cream.
