Baked Apples Stuffed with Apples

Not as healthy as some would believe

Not as healthy as some would believe

This is a fairly simple dessert that makes use of apple guts in the stuffing. It also takes advantage of melted brown sugar as a tasty internal sauce.

This recipe is for two but can easily be increased for as many people as needed.

Stuffed Apples with Apples

  • 2 large semi sweet apples
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp mace
  • 2 tbsp Lillet Blanc (or fruity white wine)

Using a sharp knife slice the tops off each apple and hollow out the inside cavity leaving 1/8″ of flesh intact. Remove core and seeds from guts and cut into small dice. Spoon 1 tbsp brown sugar into each apple, cover with the tops and bake in a greased dish at 350 degrees until apples begin to change color and brown sugar melts, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile place everything else into a sauce pan except the lillet and bring to a high simmer. Cook until mixture begins to dry out, then add lillet and simmer until thick. Remove star anise and spoon stuffing into apple center, place tops back on and bake in oven until apples have browned and are beginning to soften, but still have a little bit of bite left, about 10 minutes more. Serve hot with ice cream or whipped cream.

    This looks really good – my apples often explode or collapse. Must try using a different apple or take them out of the oven just a fraction earlier.

    I usually use walnuts but the almonds sound delicious too.

  4. You could use honey in place of the brown sugar for a great Rosh Hashanah recipe (starts soon!). πŸ™‚

  5. This would make a great side to a bowl of chili!
