HASSELBACK APPLES

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!!!



HASSELBACK APPLE

2 large, firm apples (peeled, cored, cut in half)

Cut slices into each apple half, cutting ALMOST through like this. Using spoon handles on either side of the apples (to stop the slices evenly) makes it easier.


Place the prepared apples in a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray, flat side down.

In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix well and brush all over the cut apples, like this:


Cover with foil and bake at 400F for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes.  

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.


Serves Four

ENJOY !!!
