Article Digest:
Another easy but fun dessert is this baked apple with a cinnamon sugar core. The tart apple flavor blends well with the familiar flavors of brown sugar and cinnamon spice.

Start off with 1 Tbs. brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, and a tart apple such as a Granny Smith variety. If you're preparing more than one apple, assemble a tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon for each apple. Using a fork, blend the cinnamon and sugar together, breaking up any lumps.

Cut the apple into eighths. Do this by cutting through the apple from one pole to the other and repeating with the halves and quarters. Take care to keep the pieces in order.
[IMG]

Core apple slices by cutting a wedge out of the core remaining in each slice. Also trim off the stem and flower remains (calyx).
[IMG]

Using one hand to hold sheet of aluminum foil large enough to wrap around the apple, position pieces in the cupped foil to form almost a whole apple (leaving two slices out).
[IMG]

Scoop the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture into where the core of the apple used to be. Compress the mixture as need to fit. It's okay to leave a small mound since we'll be covering it up with the remaining two slices of apple.
[IMG]

Place the final two pieces and wrap tightly with the aluminum foil to hold everything in place. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350F or on a hot grill for 10 minutes to cook the apple through. Unwrap and serve with the sugar sauce remaining in the core. This is a fun treat to produce at a casual get together or BBQ since your guests can help unwrap the apples from their aluminum casings (and if they don't know the apples are filled, it makes for a nice surprise!)

now this is clever.

I wonder if you could do something similar by quartering a slightly underripe peach/nectarine.

I really like the idea of precutting the fuit, coring it and droping a suprise in the middle.

Might you be able to do something with cold fruits as well? Such as cutting an apple in half, gutting it with a mellon baller and filling it with ice cream. (maybe some gummy worms?)

Actually what I may do, for this passover, is to cut an apple across it's width, twoards the top, and hollow it out, then fill it with charoset (or alternatively a waldorf)

In general it seems like a nice way to serve chutneys and salads.

Interesting. I've seen this done before by coring the apple, but never by cutting it first.

One thing I'd like to try is a pear hollowed out and filled with gorgonzola and walnuts and pecans.

With a Port.
