Apple Braided Coaster Set

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 4 Braeburn apples (Fuji will substitute)
  • 4 teaspoons honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine all dry ingredients and diced butter. Rub mixture Harvest Apple Soapbriskly between your fingertips until it forms small moist clumps in a loose sandy mixture. Refrigerate while preparing the apples.
  2. Cut a small layer off the bottom of each apple to create a flat, stable bottom. With a small paring knife, cut a cylindrical cone out of the top of the apple, moving about 1-inch outside of the core, similar to removing the top of a pumpkin when carving a Jack O’Lantern. Remove top, remaining core and seeds, taking care not to puncture the base of the apple.
  3. Place apples on a baking sheet or pie dish and fill each center with a teaspoon of honey. Spoon in mixture, packing lightly until heaped and overflowing.
  4. Bake in oven at 350 degrees on top or middle rack for 40 minutes, or until filling is golden and the tip of a knife can be inserted into the side of the apple with little or no resistance. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
