How To Make honey-baked apples with creme fraiche

  • 1
    Using 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.
  • 2
    Arrange the apples upright in an 8-inch baking dish and pour honey in and around the apples. Pour the water into the dish.
  • 3
    Place a strip of lemon zest in each apple cavity, then squeeze the juice of 1 lemon evenly over the apples.
  • 4
    Bake 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.
  • 5
    Remove from baking dish and dollop each apple with creme fraiche.
