Roasted Apples with Ice Cream
Feel free to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and some brown sugar along with the butter. Some apple varieties hold their shape better than others when cooked, but freshness is the most important factor. If you'd like, you can substitute heavy cream for the ice cream.
- 6 apples, such as Gala or Golden Delicious, cored
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces
- Vanilla ice cream, for serving
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fill center of each apple with 2 pieces butter, and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until apples are soft but not falling apart, about 30 minutes. (Apples may crack as they soften; if they do, remove from oven.) Serve immediately with ice cream.
