Hasselback Apples – a fun twist on apple crumble, that will be sure to impress. Definitely a fun way to enjoy apples this year!
I can’t believe that apple season is here. It is still so hot out, I am having a hard time thinking that fall is right around the corner. Although it is getting much cooler at night here, the days are still in the 80’s. But it is only a matter of time! What is your favorite way to enjoy apples. I love caramel apple pie bars, apple crisp, apple bars, and pretty much any other way I can have them. My family isn’t a huge fan though, so I don’t often get them.
I saw this recipe for Hasselback apples in my Cooking Light magazine the day it arrived, and bookmarked it immediately. I was super excited to make them. Then a few days later I started seeing their video for them on Facebook. So it fast forwarded my need to make them. I just couldn’t scroll through my newsfeed anymore, and not try them!! These baked apples look super impressive, but are actually really easy to make. Imagine hasselback potatoes, but in dessert form with ice cream on top. Yep, that good!
I have never tried traditional baked apples, for some reason they just don’t excite me. But these hasselback apples sure do. Just cut them in half, remove the core and seeds. I placed it cut side down on my cutting board, and put 2 dowels on either side of my apple. You could use the handle of a butter knife, or anything about that thickness. It just makes cutting them, and not cutting thru, super easy and fast! Then you bake, top with the crumble mixture, and you are done. Instead of cheesy goodness with hasselback potatoes, you get cinnamon struesel and creamy vanilla ice cream with these apples. Trust me, a definite way to impress anyone this fall!
