Baked Apples with “Date Paste” & Roasted Almonds

& Company Eats-81

This was by far the most popular dish at our launch party, and we are thrilled to share it! It may be the easiest dessert you’ll ever make, but it’s sure to wow the people you’re serving it to.

“What an enchanting evening! The ambiance was so warm & inviting, and the food…WOW! My favorite part was the apple dessert! 🙂 -Launch Partygoer

2 Apples of your choice (we used Braeburn) cored and sliced into 8 wedges per apple

One half pound of dates (this made more than enough paste, but it’s never a bad idea to have leftovers)

Water

1 tsp. Cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Almonds: soaked in filtered water with salt overnight, drained, and roasted at a low temp for 6-8 hours (or purchase Almonds already roasted)

Preheat oven to 375

1. Place apples on a baking sheet with 1-2 inches in between each slice. Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes, until apples are juicy and aromatic.

2. Meanwhile, put dates, cinnamon and salt in a food processor. Slowly add water and blend, until date paste reaches your desired consistency (we used about a 1/2 cup).

3. Roughly chop or crush 1/2 cup of roasted almonds.

4. Once the apples are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Once cooled, scoop 1-2 Tablespoons of the paste on each apple slice, top with the crushed almonds and serve!
