Directions

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir pecans in melted butter until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer toasted pecans to a bowl with a slotted spoon, reserving butter in pan. Cook and stir apples in reserved butter until apples begin to soften, about 2 minutes; add sugar.
  2. Stir water, raisins, and salt into apple mixture. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until raisins are plump, about 5 minutes. Add whiskey, vanilla extract, and toasted pecans.

I used this on a pumpkin spike cake ("Easy Pumpkin Muffins", but baked in 9x13) last night & it was delicious. I used dried blueberries (because I had run out of dried cranberries & don't keep raisins on hand). The recipe doesn't say how much water to use...I used about 1/2 - 2/3 cup. I also cooked it down a lot longer than this says....I wanted the apples really soft & for it to be a bit "saucier" to spoon over the cake.

Looks great but you didn't specify how much water to use. =( I definitely like the addition of the butter, though! And I like to use mango rum in my fruit compotes when I can. But tonight I think I'm going to make this using a bit of cranberry juice. Bet that'll be mahvelous! =)
