I found this darling recipe in my 1978 Betty Crocker cookbook. The cookbook was a wedding gift to my parents. I "borrowed" it from my Mom a couple of years ago. To this day it still has the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever tried. The cookie chapter is worn and stained with years of family love. We had what Mom called "Brownie Sunday". It was not always brownies, just a dessert baking day, and always on a Sunday. Chocolate Chip cookies were made just as often as brownies. I honestly think the cookie chapter was the only chapter we used growing up. I found this recipe as I was flipping through the book. I was craving a dessert that I could pour heavy whipping cream over something hot out of the oven.
2 Baking apples
3 Tbs raisins (I hate raisins so I used cranberries instead)
3 Tbs chopped nuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup water
