Sometimes all you really want for dessert is something light and sweet. Not cake, not pie, not cupcakes. Fruit would work. Not fresh, but baked. Like Dorie’s baked apples filled with fruits and nuts.


Simple. Filling. NOT heavy. Perfect.

Apples are cored, filled with butter, fruit, and nuts. Then topped with the reduced sauce (apple juice and butter) and just a little whipped cream. Yes, it was good!

I used chopped pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, and KAF fruit cake chopped fruit. The apples baked for about 50 minutes but could have gone a little longer.


The recipe is on page 394 of Dorie’s around my french table
