A true fall classic, this beautiful dessert gets a fresh twist courtesy of our signature filling.
Farm & Larder baked apple filling
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup boiling water
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Rinse and dry the apples. Using a sharp paring knife or apple corer, cut out the cores, leaving the bottom ½-inch of the apples intact. (If using a paring knife, first cut out the stem area and then use a small metal spoon to scoop out the seeds). Cut the holes so that they are an inch or so wide.
2. Place the apples in a baking dish and stuff each apple with the filling mixture. Place a dot of butter on top of the filling.
3. Pour the boiling water into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until the apples are cooked through and tender, but not overcooked and mushy. When done, remove the apples from the oven and baste them with the juices from the pan. Serve with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream or crème fraîche.
