Oh, glorious Monday, we meet again.
How was your weekend? Anything fun?
I treated myself to an all-day beauty Saturday, complete with hair, nails and a wax.
Have to stay fresh, you know?
This Monday you are all in for a special treat, like literally.
A few weeks ago I told you guys all about that fun blogger brunch that I went to, here, featuring 6 talented Boston food bloggers and Autumn Glory Apples.
We all created unique dishes with the incredibly delicious Cinnamon, Caramel apples from the Domex Farms in central Washington.
Let me tell you something….I am a total apple snob.
I am usually a Granny Smith or Red Delicious girl….and that’s about it. Every now and again I can throw a Fuji in there and be OK…I know…totally weird that I am so particular about my apples…but hey. I like what I like. Nothing wrong with that!
When I joined the blogger brunch I had never heard of the Autumn Glory Apple, which is pretty sad for me because I have been missing out on these sweet, crisp, firm apples and that is SHAME.
Autumn Glory’s fruit have a super firm flesh with LOTS of hints of cinnamon and notes of caramel.
The first time I bit into one of these apples I was legit shocked at the flavor. A lot of companies advertise things as tasting some type of way and rarely follow through, but these Autumn Glory Apples did.not.disappoint! (Where is the clap emoji when you need it?)
My original recipe using their apples was a Savory Baked Apple, here, stuffed with juicy pork and lots of fresh herbs. Since the apple is super versatile in flavors it makes it V easy to pair it with savory or sweet dishes + you can use the apples in so many different ways!
Since I had already made a savory dish with the scrumptious apples I decided to make a sweet treat this time!
I am sure you have noticed I don’t really post dessert type recipes…but that’s only because I don’t want to be eating sweets all the time!
I love, love, love desserts, and a food blogger you tend to eat your blog post creations.
HOWEVER, these apples deserve the exception.
This recipe is complete in less than 15 minutes and brings out all of those cinnamony, carmely (spelling? Hehe) notes from the apples.
Cook them down in a pan with some brown sugar a few other spices and then top in a custard bath….oh yeah! You can wipe that drool now.
The best part about this recipe is you don’t even have to like custard! Omit the custard and you have yourself some enchanting warm apples.
Pretty much a win – win, right? How do you like your apples? You guys know I love to hear from you!
Hope you enjoy this recipe.
