Baked apples

Everything you can do with apples is excellent, but mom knows best. This one is short and sweet, like the rest. Although, I have to admit coring the apple is a bitch. Could there be a special kitchen tool for this? The Empires we used a wonderful fluffy texture once out of the oven. Serve it a la mode and be impressed with your lack of effort.

4 Empire or other hard, tart and sweet apple
4 teaspoon ghee
4 teaspoon maple syrup
1/4 cup pecans, dry roasted and coarsely chopped
4 teaspoon fig jam (can substitute dried, plumped, currants or raisins)

Ground cardamom
Ground cinnamon

Set the oven to 375. Core and seed apple without puncturing the bottom. Mix the ghee, maple syrup, pecans, and jam (or dried fruit) in a small bowl. Spoon into each apple and sprinkle spices on top. Place 1/2 inch of hot water into the bottom of a 9×9” pan, and place in the oven for an hour.

    Thanks Ashley and Hillary. Lexi, actually, I didn’t specify, but I made these with homemade fig jam. It was totally excellent.

    What a fabulous idea. My adorable Thai aunt used to make these when I was little. She would put coins in there for good luck. She would get so disappointed when I didn’t eat them and I missed out on the surprise. Can you believe I didn’t have a sweet tooth? I’ll have to try again now as an adult.

    Phoebe, Wow, coins, huh. Glad you didn’t eat them then. I have an unbelievable sweet tooth. When it comes to desserts like this, though, I try not to make them that sweet, or at least balance out the natural flavors. So perhaps you will enjoy.

    Those are beautiful apples! Great photos! I must try them for my family, especially since I saw fig jam somewhere.
    I core apples with a melon baller, it has worked better than corers I’ve used.
