Ingredients

4 large
apples
1/2 c
honey
1 c
water
4
strips lemon zest (use a vegetable peeler to remove strips)
juice from 1 lemon
4-8 Tbsp
creme fraiche

Step-By-Step

1Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin from the top of the apple, around the stem. Using a melon baller, scoop out the core, being careful not to puncture the blossom end.
2Arrange the apples upright in an 8-inch baking dish and pour honey in and around the apples. Pour the water into the dish.
3Place a strip of lemon zest in each apple cavity, then squeeze the juice of 1 lemon evenly over the apples.
4Bake the apples in a preheated 350-degree oven, on a rack in the middle position, until a fork inserted into the center meets little resistance, about 45-55 minutes.
5Remove from baking dish and dollop each apple with creme fraiche.
