Glazed Apples with Espresso-Cream Sauce
Serves 4
4 granny smith apples, peeled but not cored
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup honey
3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp ground allspice
1/4 cup brewed espresso
3 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the peeled apples in a shallow baking dish.

In a small saucepan, combine the apple juice, honey, butter, allspice, and espresso. Heat until the butter melts, stirring occasionally.

Pour the mixture over the apples and bake them for 50 minutes, basting them with the liquid in the baking dish every 10 to 15 minutes.

When the apples are tender and glazed, remove them from the baking dish to a serving plate or plates; set aside and keep warm.

Mix the cream with the liquid in the baking dish and serve warm over the apples.
