Outback Steakhouse Cinnamon Oblivion

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon butter
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans

2 cups cubed Hawaiian Sweet Bread
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

20-ounce can apple pie filling
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar

4 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup caramel topping
1 1/2 cups whipped cream
4 whole strawberries

For candied pecans, combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons
water, 1 teaspoon butter, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small
saucepan over medium heat. Heat until mixture boils and all sugar
granules are dissolved. Add chopped pecans to mixture and stir
for 1 to 2 minutes over heat. Be sure that all pecans are well-coated.
Pour mixture onto a large plate and continue to stir until mixture
hardens and begins to break up. You should be able to separate all
of the nuts.

For the croutons, preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Pour the slice
bread cubes onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20
minutes or until the bread has turned light brown. Stir halfway
through cooking time. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium
heat. Pour baked croutons into the pan and sauti until the bread
is well-coated with butter. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar and
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle this mixture
over the croutons while stirring so that the croutons are well-coated
with cinnamon/sugar. Remove croutons from the heat and pour them
onto a plate to cool.

Prepare apples by carefully mixing them with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar in a large bowl. You want to be
sure you don't stir hard enough to break up the apples. Microwave
the apple for 1 to 2 minutes or until hot. To assemble the dessert
for serving, first roll four cup-size scoops of ice cream in the
pecan pieces.

Place an ice cream scoop onto a small plate, then pour about a
tablespoon of caramel over the ice cream. Dribble another tablespoon
around the base of the ice cream onto the plate. Spread the hot
apples around the base of the ice cream being sure to divide them
evenly amongst the four servings. Divide the croutons into four
portions and sprinkle them on the apples around the base of the
ice cream scoop on each plate. Spread a generous portion of whipped
cream onto the top of each scoop of ice cream. Top off each dish
with a fresh strawberry.

Makes 4 servings.
