White Wine Baked Apples

An excellent dish for enjoying this time of the year. Delicious served warm on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! This recipe calls for a dry white wine, so we recommend Coastline White, Black Label Pinot Grigio, or Braganini Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.

Ingredients

  • 6 large baking apples
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tsp butter, softened
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts coarsely, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins (can substitute for chopped figs or dates)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 cup dry white wine

Topping

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter softened

Instructions

  1. Core apples, almost to bottom, leaving base intact. With a knife, cut the tops of the apple all the way round the middle.
  2. In a bowl, combine butter and brown sugar. Add in nuts, raisins, cinnamon, salt, and lemon juice then stir.
  3. Pack the butter mixture into cored apples, pushing down well. Leave a scoop on top of each apple.
  4. Place apples in 8 x 11 inch baking dish. Pour wine in baking dish.
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the apples are very tender. (Cover with foil if toppings are browning too quickly)
  6. Combine butter and brown sugar for topping. Spoon a teaspoon of reserved topping over each apple.
  7. Bake additional 5 minutes before removing from the oven and letting cool until warm.
