Good Morning! I am Kerry and I blog over at Till Then Smile Often! I can't thank Stacia enough for letting my guest post for her while she is enjoying some time with her family over the holidays. I wanted to share a recipe that is listed as Gluten Free or easily made to be Gluten Free. These Baked Caramel Maple Walnut Apples are easy to make and can be made as a single apple or for a bunch of apples. Hope you enjoy!
Ingredients: 4 large apples (I used Granny Smith's) ~ 3/4 cup maple syrup ~ 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) walnut pieces ~ 1/4 cup golden raisins or dates ~ 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces ~ Sprinkle of Ground Cinnamon ~ Caramel sauce (optional)
Heat oven to 400° F. Using a paring knife, remove the cores and trim about a 1/2-inch slice from the bottom of each apple, so they sit flat.
Place the apples in an 8- to 9-inch glass baking dish. Drizzle with the syrup and caramel sauce. Divide the walnuts and raisins/dates among the apples, filling the center.
Sprinkle the apples with a little cinnamon. Place the butter on top of each apple.
Bake until tender, approximately 30 - 40 minutes. NOTE: If you cook too long they can explode so I recommend checking them at the 20 minute mark and then every 5 minutes.blog for more recipes every week. Thank you again to Stacia for having me today!
