Y’all, I think I have a new favorite dessert. I have some really great favorites- Blue Bell triple chocolate ice cream, cookie butter, vanilla frosting (yes, by itself), Treebeard’s chocolate cake, apple pie…but now I have to add salted caramel apple delight bars to the list. These babies are chewy, crunchy, sweet, savory, and ooey gooey delicious. Picture this: start with a crunchy vanilla shortbread crust, then add a layer of cinnamon and brown sugar coated apples. Last, top it with a crunchy brown sugar and oatmeal topping. It’s okay if you’re drooling; I am, too. And the beauty is, these aren’t hard to make! It’s the best of all worlds.
Baked apples are a simple, potentially healthy dessert that is rich and satisfying. They can be made in a variety of ways, from the ultimate healthy option of no added sugar, to a rich and decadent dessert loaded with sugar and butter and topped with ice cream. This is another of those versatile desserts that can be tweaked to suit your taste buds; something you know I love and that I think you will, too. Today I’ll share with you my favorite baked apples recipe, which you can copy or tweak to your heart’s desire. It strikes a nice balance between sweet and savory with notes of brown sugar and cinnamon (and a little butter).
