Grandma’s baked apples

Baked apples are such a gourmet dessert that fits a healthy diet. I feel it’s not as common to serve this dessert as it used to be. Though this dessert has it all. It’s delicious and low carb – depending of course how much butter and rum you add. I really like this version using honey and rum; my grandma’s favorite.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F.

Wash apples. Cut the top of the apples and keep it apart. Remove cores using an apple corer if you have and make holes about 3/4-inch wide. Use a bit of lemon juice to avoid apple oxidation. In the hole, add one or two teaspoons of honey. Add one teaspoon of rum. Then add, one salted butter curl. Close the apple with its top.

Bake for 35 minutes. Baste the apples with the pan juices from time to time.

Serve warm with crushed butter cookies on top.
