I love Fall! Something about the chill in the air at night and the changing of the leaves make me feel like cooking and planning parties. I pinned two delicious apple desserts on Pinterest and decided I would make one for the family on Sunday. One recipe had the apple carved out and baked with ice cream inside and the other recipe is an apple cut in half with a streusel topping that you bake. Anyway long story short I decided to mix the two recipes. I was wanting the streusel but I knew the kids would love having the apple be the bowl.
I bought Granny Smith apples and carved them out with a mini cookie scoop.
I mixed together a 1/4 cup (half a stick) of melted butter, 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour,1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
Fill the apples full of streusel mix, press down and fill up to the top again.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. If the apples are really big you may need more time. Top with a dollop of ice cream.
They were delicious! I will definitely make them again. The kids loved them and they are sophisticated enough for a great dinner party.
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Cut a hole in the top of the apple and scoop out the inside of the apples till all seeds have been removed. Spoon streusel into apples, press down and add more streusel till it apple is full. Bake on baking sheet at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. If the apples are large it may need to be baked longer. Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream.
