Hasselback Potatoes (a recipe originating in Sweden) have been around for a while, but some cooking genius came up with the idea for Hasselback Apples.....and they are delicious!!!
Take out of the oven and let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
When they come out of the oven, the slices will have separated just a little.
Mix 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons old fashioned rolled oats, 1 teaspoon flour, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Very carefully pry each apple slice open (just a little) and put some of the oat-sugar mixture in between the hot slices. Spoon a little of the liquid (that has formed in the bottom of the pan)over the whole apple and return to the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
If you want the apples to have more "color", put them under the broiler for the last 30-40 seconds.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
