We don't eat dessert often. When I do make dessert it's something like this. These are really delicious as well as beautiful and wholesome too. The red wine makes for a delightfully striking look, but you can use brandy instead, too. I actually prefer the flavor with brandy, but you can't beat this red color and honestly it's pretty close in terms of yumminess too. Of note, all the alcohol is cooked out of this so there is no alcohol left in it by the time the dish is served.
