You'll Love Making This Yummy Dessert

Fall is a great time to make your favorite baked apple recipe. This one that we found in Emily Luchetti's “Four-Star Desserts” cookbook pushes the “yumm” index up a notch by adding a home made caramel sauce. The recipe takes a bit more time that the usual baked apple recipe, but it’s worth the effort. Enjoy!

FOR THE BAKED APPLES

14 cup sugar

14 cup maple syrup

4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 tbsp. ground cinnamon

14 tsp. kosher salt

6 firm Fuji apples, stemmed and cored

FOR THE CARAMEL SAUCE

12 cups sugar

13 cup heavy cream

12 cup raisins

2 tbsp. dark rum

Instructions

Make the baked apples: Heat oven to 325°. Combine sugar, syrup, butter, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl; set aside. Cut 14" from bottom of apples so that they sit flat; transfer apples to a 9" x 13" baking pan. Fill hollow cores with reserved sugar-syrup mixture. Cover apples with foil; bake until tender, about 50 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the caramel sauce: Heat sugar and 12 cup water in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, without stirring, until amber colored and a candy thermometer inserted into syrup reads 330˚, about 20 minutes. Remove pan from heat; let cool slightly. Add cream (caramel will bubble up slightly). Stir in raisins and rum; set aside. Serve apples with caramel sauce and ice cream.
