Looking for Apple/Confectioner's Sugar Recipe

I was just listening to the Joan Hamburg show on WOR radio in New York, and heard a brief spot where "Food Talk" host Mike Colameco shared a recipe for what I think he called an instant crustless apple pie. I was driving and it went by so quickly that I missed it. I know that two of the ingredients it called for, were 10X confectioner's sugar, and sliced apples. I think that he said something about caramelizing the confectioner's sugar in a microwave, and mixing it with the apples. Unfortunately that's all the info. that I caught.

Is anyone familiar with this recipe? Doesn't sound like any crustless apple pie recipe I've heard before, but it does sound interesting.

Thanks so much!

  1. Is it the Elegant Farmer’s Quick Microwave Apple Sauce? That recipe was on Joan's show this week recently and is on the station's website:

      No, it wasn't applesauce. Maybe I can put my question differently. Does anyone know of a recipe for caramelized apples that calls for confectioner's sugar rather than granulated, and is prepared in a microwave?


      Here's a link to Joan's shows on WOR, if you've got a couple hours to kill to listen.
