A truly homey dessert, packed with our signature sweet filling.
4 baking apples, such as Lady Alice
Farm & Larder baked apple filling
2½ tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup rum or brandy
½ cup heavy cream (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
2. Core the apples using a sharp paring knife or melon baller, scooping out some of the flesh, but leaving the apples whole and intact. Make a slit around the middle of each apple.
3. Place Farm & Larder filling in a small bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the melted butter. Drizzle the remaining butter in a small baking dish. Place the apples in the dish. Stuff the hollows with the filling mixture, packing densely. Pour the rum or brandy over the apples.
4. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil. Bake the apples for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and spoon some of the pan juices over the apples. Bake, uncovered, until the apples are cooked through, about 30 minutes longer. Whisk the cream with a fork until lightly thickened, drizzle over apples, and serve.
