Thanks to Four Roses Bourbon, my holiday season got off to a very merry start.
One of my favorite foods during the holidays, well any time of the year, is baked apples. Not only are baked apples delicious but they make your house smell divine while they’re baking in the oven. For this recipe, the combination of brown sugar, cinnamon, honey and vanilla can be super sweet so the Four Roses Bourbon helps to cut the edge off the sweet tooth. Here’s my recipe for Four Roses Bourbon baked apples
- 4 apples (I used Gala because they’re my favorite)
- 4 TBSPs butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/4 cup Four Roses Bourbon
- 1/4 cup oats (quick 1-minute whole grain)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Soften butter in the microwave. Cube your apples (excluding the core). Combine butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, honey and bourbon. Place apples in a baking pan then top with your sweet bourbon glaze. Sprinkle oats on top of the apples and bake for 15-20 minutes.
There y’all have it. Four Roses Bourbon Baked Apples!
These baked apples are as sweet as candy. Like Dolly Parton said in Steel Magnolias, you can pour these over vanilla ice cream to cut the sweetness.
