It has been a little while since I participated in French Fridays with Dorie. I can't remember if there was a recipe that I didn't want to do and then I just kept missing or what. I am behind on Tuesdays with Dorie as well. That group just made Pizza with Onion Confit and Finnish Pulla. I did actually make the Pulla not long after I got the book but never took pictures. Trust me when I tell you the bread is delicious! I saw several people on Facebook post about these apples today. It looked easy and I had an apple and butter on hand so into the kitchen I ventured while taking a break from grading papers. I am not sure if I mentioned in a post or not but our dishwasher is broken. It makes it really tempting to leave the dishes to the next day and unfortunately happens often. It also makes me not want to cook knowing I will have to wash all of the dishes by hand. I know, I know! First world problems!
This recipe called for 4 apples but I just made 1 for me, for lunch of course. I cut the amount of sugar, butter, ginger, and coriander. I actually pulled out my mandolin for slicing the apples and didn't even slice off my finger! I managed to slice open my pinky the other day on the bottom of a bowl....ouch!
The technique used here was layer, brush with butter, sprinkle sugar mixture, repeat. Wrap with plastic wrap then aluminum foil* (borrowed from sweet next door neighbor because I still didn't buy any since Christmas), place on silicon mat lined tray and bake undisturbed for 2 hours at 300 degrees. I am not sure why you were supposed to wrap with plastic wrap, I am pretty sure I ate the section that melted.....
Overall, this was easy, quick to put together, and tasty! It is definitely a treat I might make again for me and Little Man but I don't think my hubs or my girl would like it...the whole cooked fruit thing. :) Make sure to check out the LYL to see how other cooks around the country liked these. I may be out the rest of the month as next week is chicken liver and the week after is shrimp. I can't stand shrimp but my family loves it so I may make that one. :) It is good to be back!
*Did you know that foil and plastic wrap have tabs on the side of the box to punch in and keep the roll in place? I am far too excited about this piece of information that I picked up on a recipe site last night! Go check your boxes! You will be amazed!
