Welcome to round THREE of Man Monday’s Vacation Special: Zach Plans My Vacation Meal. Also identified as ZPMHM. Has a high-quality ring, doesn’t it? I would correct invent a Christmas song out of it…
Anywho. So, in case you’ve been following alongside with my other posts this month, I’ve already given you guys a belief for an appetizer and an entree. So what’s next? Dessert!
Now, I know what you’re thinking… stuffed apples for dessert? Is that this no longer The US? Where’s the pie? Where’s the center-attack-on-a-stick? Where’s my deep fried snickers bar?! Effectively, though all of these items are delicious, I desired to invent something a dinky of simpler than pie, a dinky of classier than a chocolate bar, and though this recipe will calm give you the Vacation richness you’ll need, it’s positively no longer a heart-attack-on-a-stick. And, in case that you would possibly perchance love, that you would possibly even wait on it as a aspect-dish. It doesn’t even must be served as a dessert. Anyway, enough talking… that is the ability you enact it other folks.
Cranberry Walnut Stuffed Apples
Makes 4 servings
- 4 Granny Smith apples
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup walnuts, crushed
- 1/4 dried cranberries (craisins)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon clove spice
- tin foil (no longer obligatory)Directions:
- So that is great straightforward. First, preheat your oven to 350º.
- Then, core your apple from the cease and hollow it out a dinky bit with a spoon, but don’t decrease the total ability through. You desire a dinky of bit of the apple core to stay on the underside to wait on the total goodness in.
- Soften your butter in a tiny saucepan on medium warmth. Mix the final substances and incorporate smartly. Don’t let it rating too sizzling, or you’ll own corpulent, very no longer likely-to-work-with syrup on your fingers. Factual mix it together till the sugar is dissolved within the butter and your cranberries and walnuts are smartly lined.
- Preserve about 1/4 cup of your cranberry combination and stuff it into one in all your apples. Repeat for the final apples. At the same time as you happen to own some combination left over, that’s k, correct cram it on prime of the apple that has the least.
- I earn to issue a dinky of half of tin foil below each apple on a baking sheet, this keeps the juices from getting forever caked on your baking sheet.
- Perform the apples within the oven and prepare dinner for about 14-20 minutes. Preserve closer to 14 minutes in case that you would possibly perchance love a firmer apple. 20 minutes provides you with a tender, deliciously squishy apple. For my fragment, I love the firmer apple.
