Baked Stuffed Apples

167 (1)

When we find ourselves with an influx of fresh, local apples – which is often throughout the fall – this makes for a convenient dessert. If you’re a fan of apple crisp, we think you’ll like this method even better, as the apple serves as the vessel for the crisp and makes an attractive presentation for individual servings.

At the co-op, you can stock up on Champlain Orchards‘ apples grown in nearby Shoreham, Vermont. Then visit our bulk department where you’ll find oats, brown sugar, raisins, nuts, and many other items. Customize the ingredients to your liking and get creative. Try swapping out raisins for currants and walnuts for peanuts, for instance.

While these stuffed apples make an awesome dessert, we have to say they’re even better heated up for breakfast the next morning.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup raisins (or dried cranberries or currants)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 4 tbsp butter cubed
  • 4 large apples
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F.
  2. Combine all but the apples in a large bowl, incorporating the butter by hand, if needed, to make small clumps of the filling mixture.
  3. Core one of the apples with a spoon by scooping a large cavity around the stem, being sure to remove the seeds in the process. Fill, pressing the oat mixture down into the apple as best as you can. Then repeat the coring and filling process with each remaining apple, filling each one before coring the next to prevent browning.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. The apples are done when easily pierced with a knife. If not tender, continue baking another 5 minutes at time. How long it takes will vary depending upon the size of your apples.
  5. Serve warm, topped with freshly whipped cream or your favorite ice cream.
