Delightful Maple Baked Apples
This recipe is not only simple, it is extremely yummy, especially for those with a sweet tooth. Gather these ingredients:
4 large apples
2 ounces of walnut pieces
¾ cup of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
If you are feeling especially adventurous, don’t hesitate to add your favorite ice cream to bring a cool sensation to the already warm taste of the apples.
After you have gathered the supplies, you’ll want to cut the cores of the apples out and trim the base about a half-inch, ensuring that they sit flat in an oven-safe skillet or baking pan. Place the walnuts all over the apples and pan before you drizzle on the maple syrup. Next, you’ll bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until they are tender. Serve them hot and enjoy.
2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 ¼ cups of heavy cream
¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
5 large eggs
8 ounces of bittersweet chocolate
1 cup of granulated sugar
½ cup of crème fraîche
¼ cup of confectioners’ sugar
I’ve mentioned this recipe before and that is because it is grand. You’ll want to butter a nine-inch spring form pan and put a bit of cocoa butter in it. Make sure to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll want to whisk the granulated sugar, cocoa butter, eggs, and chocolate mixture.
You will also want to melt the butter on a low to medium temperature and mix in the chocolate, stirring until they are creamy smooth. Combine your ingredients into the baking pan and let it bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Let it cool for a while before you enjoy.
Raspberry Sorbet and Cookies
1 cup of heavy cream
2 pints of raspberry sorbet
2 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar
16 small meringue cookies
Simply whip the cream and sugar in a bowl until they are in a nice form. In another bowl, gently break the cookies into pieces. Next, take your desired portion of sorbet, add some whipped cream, sprinkle some of the cookies on top, and have a tasty dessert.
