Bourbon Baked Apples a la Mode
# Servings: 6 Category: Desserts
- 6 large Honeycrisp apples
- ⅔ cup rolled oats
- ⅔ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 4 tablespoons salted butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup apple cider
- ⅓ cup bourbon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Core the stem end of the apples partially, removing only two-thirds of each core. Combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and mix well. Add pecans, butter and vanilla extract and work into the oats mixture until a ball forms. Stuff equal portions of the mixture into each apple and arrange in a large baking dish. Sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired. Pour the apple cider and bourbon into the baking dish, spooning some over the apples. Bake for 45 minutes or until the apples are wrinkled and browned, spooning the cooking liquid over the apples every 10 minutes. Serve immediately with cinnamon or vanilla ice cream.
