Desserts on the BBQ?

Yes! You can cook dessert on the BBQ too! But make sure you have cleaned the rack REALLY well. Unless you like BBQ sauce on your dessert! Fruit is the easiest, healthy, and yummy. Peaches, Pineapple, Bananas, Apples, Pears... Cut them up in somewhat of a cube shape and put them on skewers for a kabob. Or slice them and add a sauce.

1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
4 large baking apples, cored and cut in half
melted butter

1. Make the topping ahead of time buy oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add the butter and work it in evenly with a fork or your fingertips until it is pea sized. Stir in the pecans and refrigerate until you are ready to make the dessert.
2. Brush the cut side of the apples with the melted butter. Arrange the apples cut side down on the grill and cook over medium heat for twenty minutes. Turn them once after ten minutes.
3. Spoon the topping onto the cut side of the apples. Cook for another five minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and glazed. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

And it's always sure to be a "cool" treat when you add ice cream. I LOVE homemade ice cream the best. I might have to do some homemade ice cream recipes... stay tuned!
