Snowball-Apples

Several Years ago I received a cookbook that features 200 year old recipes from the beautiful Emmental region in Switzerland. If your wondering-yes, this is the region were the Emmentaler Cheese is from:)

Many recipes are well known dishes in today’s households. I am used to eat and prepare baked apples filled with ground hazelnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Such a classic!

Topped with Meringue, my kids thought these look a little bit like snowballs:)

In the book these are called Snow-Apples/Schnee-Aepfel.

 

Snowball-Apples

  • 4 apples
  • jam of your liking (I used red currant)
  • applejuice
  • 1 or 2 eggwhites
  • sugar

 

-Preheat oven to 375F/190C

-Peel apples (I left the skin on), cut out the cores. Place apples in a baking dish.

-Fill holes with jam. Cover the bottom of your dish with some juice.

-Bake in oven for about 40 min. or until soft.

-Whip one or two egg-whites until soft peaks form, add sugar and keep whisking until shiny.

-Top apples with Meringue and bake 10 minutes, or until lightly brown.

 

–I used 2 egg whites which gave the snowball effect;)–

–I prepared the meringue with honey–
