Last-Minute Thanksgiving Desserts: Pecan Pie Baked Apples

November 24, 2015 | By | Comments (5)

Thanksgiving can be incredibly stressful. The turkey is too big (or too small). Is it done yet? Is it dressed or stuffed? Cornbread! No, traditional herb seasoned. Gotta make the gravy! Oh, wait! Brussels with or without bacon? What about the potatoes!? Lumpy or smooth…

It’s just all so, and too, much. So when it comes to dessert, leave it to the last minute! This idea (and four more listed below) will take less than 30 minutes to put together, and everyone gets a slice of happy, stress-free sweetness.

Pecan Pie Baked Apples
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 medium apples

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a saute pan, heat butter and brown sugar until slightly caramelized. Add nuts and cinnamon and toss to coat. Remove from heat and let cool.

2. Remove stem from the apple and using a paring knife, scoop the core of the apple but leave some at the bottom to hold the filling. Stuff apples evenly with pecan mixture and place in a shallow baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes, or until soft.
