This week we were assigned to prepare Baked Apples filled with Fruits and Nuts
for French Friday with Dorie.
I had been waiting to try this recipe for sometime and I think I got a little overboard with it. While I liked it, I wasn't overly impressed. The reason however is not the recipe...its just me. I over-complicated the flavors by mixing in raisins, prunes, dried cranberries, dates, hazelnuts and pecans. I should have kept things simple and filled up the apples with just one fruit and one nut. I thought the scoops consisting of just the baked apple and a fruit or a nut tasted lovely..
I will probably make these again but next time a simpler and a lovelier version.... Also next time, I will tent the bowl of filled apples with a sheet of aluminium foil from the very beginning so that I do not have to bake them for that extra 30 minutes beyond the recommended 75 minutes..
