Courses: Dessert
Serves: 8 people

Recipe Ingredients

8 cups 1896mlTart baking apples (medium) (such as Fuji or Newton Pippin)
1/3 cup 53g / 1.9ozGolden raisins
1/3 cup 78mlFruity, slightly sweet wine (such as Riesling or Gewurztraminer)
1/2 cup 118mlToasted pinenuts
1/3 cup 65g / 2.3ozMelted butter
1/2 cup 80g / 2.8ozBrown sugar
1/2 cup 118mlDry white wine
1 teaspoon 5mlGrated lemon zest
  Sherry Custard Sauce - see * Note
8   Amaretti Cookies - see * Note
8   Mint sprigs (large)
  Fresh raspberry sauce - if desired

Recipe Instructions

Peel and core apples and place in a baking dish just large enough to hold them. In a small saucepan bring the raisins and wine to a simmer and then set aside for 15 minutes to allow raisins to plump.

Drain well, reserving any liquid, and combine raisins with pinenuts and stuff the cavity of the apples. Add butter, brown sugar, dry white wine, lemon zest and reserved liquid to sauce pan and simmer to melt sugar (about 2 minutes). Drizzle mixture over apples and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a toothpick. Baste apples occasionally with juices.

To serve: Place the warm apples on shallow wide rim bowls. Spoon Sherry Custard Sauce around and sprinkle crushed Amaretti Cookies over apples before serving. Garnish with mint sprigs on top of apples to suggest a stem and drizzle a little raspberry sauce decoratively in Sherry Custard Sauce, if desired.


Note: See the "Sherry Custard Sauce" and "Amaretti Cookies" recipes which are included in this collection.
