From the archives. It’s apple and nut season across a lot of the U.S., so it’s the perfect time to wip up a batch of these gems. You’ll be glad you did!
Recipe ideas can come from anywhere. This post is proof of that. The idea for baked apples was driven into both my head and that of my oldest son one afternoon during an episode of “Little Bear” that the youngest was watching on NickJr. It only took one mention of honey baked apples to have us both drooling over the concept.
Luckily for us, Fall is upon us and with it are apples. The stores are overflowing with fresh, delicious apples of every variety, shape and color, all perfectly ripe and in-season, so getting the right ingredients was no chore at all. The only difficulty was in coring the apples… Or it would have been, if I hadn’t had two very eager kids helping me with it.
So here I present to you the new favorite dessert in the Russell household. A dish that has been given nods of approval from all but my youngest, the nuggetarian. (I couldn’t get him to try it. Had he done so, I’m sure he would like it as well.) It’s cold outside folks. Isn’t this the perfect way to end a long day? Just this and a Muscatto and all is well.
What I would have done Differently had I thought of it at the time:
I’m not sure what I would do differently with this. Both older boys loved this dish, making it is fairly simple and I am most certainly going to be making them more often as the winter progresses. If anything I may try something with larger apples and caramel…
Yeah. Caramel. That sounds good.
