Working with this new book, I thought I’d start off easy before sliding into new territory. Baked apples. I know, why would you even need a recipe for baked apples? But hey, I for one had never before baked these beauties. What changed my mind? Seeing these beauties at Smith Family Farm, shining in their own glory, with naught a drop of wax to deter my sight from their natural beauty. Ahhhhhhhhhh. Oh, and the sugar, and of course the brandy.
Here we go:
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Core apples and hollow out with a melon baller or mini scoop.
- Fill with brown sugar.
- Douse with brandy.
- Replace core.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
And tah, dah … with such a simple recipe we should all see perfection. Uh, but on my first try, all I got was 33%.
