  2.  Meanwhile, to prepare the caramel sauce, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/4 cup of the milk, the brown sugar, cornstarch and salt, stirring until smooth, then stirring in the remaining milk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

WW POINTS VALUE: 3 per serving (1 baked apple with 2 tbsp sauce)

Note: This recipe appears in the WW New Complete Cookbook. I made this recipe last week and it was so delicious. You can substitute walnuts, raisins, or any dried fruit of your choice for the dried apricot halves and the apples will be just as good. If you have any leftover caramel sauce, you can use it over ice cream or pancakes if you'd like.
