Baked Apples & Apple Strudel

See how Xagave transforms the ordinary baked apple into extraordinary! Also see how we make a quick apple strudel . 

What is Xagave? A combination of white and blue Agave Nectar, combined to make the healthiest and tastiest natural sweetener around. Plus, it's the lowest natural sugar on the glycemic index. That's great news too. Yummy!

Recipe for the Baked Apples:

6 Granny Smith Apples
1/2 stick butter
1/3 cup Xagave
1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped pecans
1 1/2 Tbsp. dried cranberries
1 Tbsp. freshly grated orange rind
heavy cream
2 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. rolled oats
Orange liquer (optional)

Square off the tops and bottoms of 4 Granny Smith Apples. Core them and carve out the flesh of the apple to create a nice little bowl. Peel the apples if desired, leaving the top of the apple intact to cover the apples while baking.
With the other 2 apples, dice them and place them in a bowl along with pecans, cranberries, orange rind, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, 1 tbsp. of liquer and 3 Tbsp. Xagave. Blend well.

In the mean time, melt 1/4 cup butter in a heavy saucepan with 3 Tbsp. Xagave and 1 Tbsp. orange liquer, and when bubbly, invert the carved out apples to carmelize the tops. This takes about 3-4 minutes. When the tops are golden, turn the apples over, and fill them with the apple filling. Spoon some of the caramel mixture over the top of the apples, and cover each apple with the reserved "hat" you cut out in the beginning.

Bake in the same skillet at 350 for about 15-20 minutes, making sure they don't overbake. No mushy apples, please! Remove onto a plate, and drizzle with Xagave sweetened heavy cream. Enjoy!
