Baked Sicilian Apples
Marchesi di San Giuliano has a wonderfully simple recipe for baked apples that we think would make a perfect Thanksgiving dessert-alternative.
- 4 Golden Delicious Apples, peeled and cored
- juice of a lemon
- 1 teaspoon cinammon
- 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1 tablespoon chunks
- 7 tablespoons Mandarin Marmalade
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of the marmalade and 2 tablespoons of hot water. Arrange the apples in a baking dish and pour this mixture over top, ensuring even coverage.
In another small bowl, mash the butter and cinammon together into a paste. Spoon one tablespoon each of butter and marmalade into each apple. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool a few minutes before serving. These are incredible with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of crème fraîche.
