RECIPE UPDATE – Whiskey Scented Baked Apple with Orange Almond Filling

Whiskey-Scented Baked Apple

Here’s a baked apple for grown ups. The secret ingredient is a splash of whiskey in the cavity of each apple before stuffing. While it bakes, the alcohol burns off leaving the smoky mellow taste of the spirit in each apple. (A splash of orange or lemon juice will have a similar effect.)

The almond filling adds just enough richness to make this a party dish. (It is the same filling we’ve used to stuff apricot, nectarine and peach halves before baking.) Serve the apples hot from the oven with a generous scoop of ice cream and a few dribbles of caramel sauce.
