Very easy recipe that grills while you enjoy the main course.  Perfect for a “every-course off the grill” menu.  Simply delicious!

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, sliced thinly
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
4 large baking apples, halved and cored
3 Tbs. butter, melted

1. In a medium-bowl mix oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add the 1/3 cup sliced butter and work it in evenly with a fork, pastry blender, or your fingertips until it is pea sized. Stir in the pecans and refrigerate.

2. Brush the cut side of the apples with the melted butter. Arrange the apples cut side down on the grill and grill over medium heat for 10 minutes. Turn them once and grill an additional 10 minutes.

3. Spoon the topping onto the cut side of the apples. Grill for another five minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and glazed. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

*Mike’s comments:

You may have noticed their are 8 desserts yet the recipe claims it serves 7. That’s because you are going to want to stash the last one for later chef-consumption!
