Expert Tips

*To toast pecans, heat oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Substitute whipped cream for the ice cream.

To peel apples, use a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler. It peels more quickly than a knife and will remove the peel without taking much of the apple flesh. Or use a crank-type apple peeler to save time.
