I saw a recipe for these beautiful apples a few weeks ago and wanted badly to try it. I’ve altered it a little bit to fit my taste and here it is:
Preheat the oven to 180C/360F. Peel the apples, slice off the tops, rub them with lemon and remove the core. Then enlarge the holes and be careful to leave the bottoms intact. Fill the apples with Nutella. Cut pastry in 1,5cm stripes.Wrap the straps around the apples, overlapping the edges. Mix egg yolk with water and brush the wrapped apples. Place them in a baking pan and bake for 30 min or till the crust is crisp and golden. Add walnuts and cinnamon before serving. Bon apetit!
- 4-5 medium sized slightly sour apples
- 1 lemon
- Nutella ( you can use any other chocolate hazelnut spread, you can also try with different jams)
- One egg
