In this recipe, a simple oat filling gets packed into hollowed out apples and baked.
It’s really that easy.
To Make This Baked Apples Recipe You Will Need:
- honeycrisp apples
- unsalted butter
- old fashioned oats
- dark brown sugar
- chopped pecans
- kosher salt
- pure vanilla extract
- vanilla ice cream, for serving
- butter rum sauce, for serving
First, preheat your oven to 350°.
Use a melon baller to scoop the hollow out the core of the apples, be careful not to pierce and go all the way through the bottom of the apple. Use a vegetable peeler to run it around the top to give it a clean edge/opening.
Set the apples into a baking dish and set off to the side.
In a medium bowl combine the butter, sugar, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and the vanilla.
Then add in the pecans and raisins, stir to combine.
Spoon the oat filling into the hollowed out apples, press and pack them full.
Cover the apples tightly with foil and bake on the middle rack of your oven for 40 minutes.
Remove the foil and continue bsking for 10 minuts more or until the apple is tender.
Top the warm baked apples with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzle it with butter rum sauce and scatter chopped pecans over top. Unhinge your jaw and inhale. Kidding.
The best part is when you cut into the apple and the crumbly oat filling falls out and the ice cream melts into it. It’s so incredible. I hope you make this and see what I mean!
