How to make baked apples
Making these stuffed apples is super easy since it only requires 3 ingredients. Begin by combining your chopped walnuts and cooked sweetened condensed milk (dulce de leche) in a small bowl. Now take your apples and remove the core (leave the bottom of the apple). Place your prepared apples into a raised baking dish that is lined with foil.
How to make dulce de leche
Remove the can’s label and place it in a heavy-bottomed pot. Fully submerge the can with water (about 2 inches above the can). Then place the pot over high heat and bring to a simmer for 2 hours. Now remove it with tongs and allow it to fully cool down to room temperature before opening it. If you plan on making this, make more than 1 can. You’ll be surprised how many amazing desserts are made with this amazing caramelized condiment. I especially love it in my honey raspberry cake. Such a delight!
How long to bake the apples
Now stuff each apple with the filling and place in the oven at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. After your apples have finished baking and have cooled down. Garnish them with some powdered sugar and enjoy!
How to core an apple
- Place the apple on a cutting board, stem up.
- Using a paring knife, or apple corer cut around the core of the apple. Make sure not to cut all the way through. For these baked apples you want the bottom of the apple to remain. This will keep the walnut mixture to stay in the apple.
- Remove the apple core.
- If there are any remaining seeds or parts of the core left, then use your paring knife to completely clean up the inside.
