Baked Apples (Pommes Bonne Femme)

Pommes bonnes femmes is a classic French baked apple dish. Marie-Aude Rose, the Parisian chef behind the much-lauded all-day cafe La Mercerie in New York, learned this version from her grandmother. The tender baked apples are finished with raspberry jam and toasted hazelnuts.

Cook's Notes

To let the flavor of the apples shine, chef Marie-Aude Rose prefers jam that is a maximum of 40 percent sugar and that doesn't use any preservatives (lemon juice and pectin only).
