The weather in Boston turned cold suddenly. I was under the happy illusion that we would continue with balmy summery days. Until now. So with apples at the farmer’s markets and a move towards baking mixing up some concoction to bake my haul from the market was a natural. And with jam on hand and my love of tree nuts I came up with a delicious sweet and warm baked apple.
Preheat oven to 350.
- 2 Large firm apples (Cortland and Baldwins are good choices)
- 1/3 cup of Peach ginger or apricot orange jam
- 1/3 cup Walnuts
- Butter to taste
Peel the top of the apples and core.
Place apples in baking pan large enough to hold the apples.
Spread with jam, top with walnuts and lay slices of butter on top.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the topping is bubbling and the apples are soft.
Cool slightly and serve.
The apples are delicious as is but a little ice cream or heavy cream elevates the consistency and taste just enough!
