Let it Snow Apples!


Hi! As promised, here is a recipe where no/minimal baking is required. To caramelize the surface of the meringue, you can place the decorated apples under a hot salamander (grill) or simply use a blow torch. This is a beautiful dessert and decorating it can be a challenge. Use a 1/2 inch star nozzle for piping the meringue onto the apple.

Snow Apples

Ingredients
4 Large Apples - peeled & cored
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
4 tbsp Butter
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Meringue:
4 egg whites
1/2 cup Sugar

Method

(Classic Baked Apples):
Place apples in a baking dish. Fill the centre with Brown sugar and Cinnamon and top with a tbsp of Butter. Put a little water in the dish. Bake at 200 degrees C for 40-45 minutes or till apples are soft when pierced with a knife.

(Cooked Apples):
Alternatively, in a saucepan place the Apples and fill up with Water till it covers the Apples. Stir in Sugar and a stick of Cinnamon. Cook till Apples are soft. Remove and set aside to cool.

For Meringue:
Whisk the Egg White and Sugar until stiff peaks.
Pipe the meringue around the apple. Use a blow torch to caramelize the meringue till you get a lovely brown tinge. (Or bake for 20 minutes till golden brown.)


Have fun!

Sher,

I am confused about this part --

For Meringue:
Whisk the Egg White until stiff peaks.
Pipe the meringue around the apple. Use a blow torch to caramelize the meringue till you get a lovely brown tinge. (Or bake for 20 minutes till golden brown.)

Also, I do not know where to get a blow torch here... I do not know how to use one.
:(

Hey Piebuko! Sorry for the confusion. The meringue decoration refers to the one in the picture. If you do not want to decorate your apples. All you need to do is whisk the Egg White and Sugar together till stiff peaks (when you remove the whisk from the mixture, you will see the foam really firm and holds its shape.
You can mix the meringue with the Apple mixture and serve with the apples instead. (Ignore baking part!)
Good luck!
