Recipe for baked apples
For fours persons, wash four sour apples such as boskoop or cox orange. Cut off the top, remove the apple core and a little bit of the pulp. Mix 50 grams soft butter with 70 grams sugar, half a teaspoon of cinnamon, 30 grams of raisins and 50 grams minced nuts. Fill the apples with the mix, put on the tops and put the apples in a pan. Heat 100 milliliters of apple juice with two table spoons of lemon juice and 20 grams of sugar and pour it on the apples.
Cover the apples with aluminum foil and put the apples in the pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit). When using a fan oven, prepare them at 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit). Grad. Remove the foil after 25 minutes and leave the apples in the oven for another ten minutes. Once the apples have cooled down a little bit, lift the tops and fill them with 60 grams nut-nougat cream such as Nutella, put the tops back on and serve them right away.
Happy gingerbread men are also popular and essential for Christmas. If you want to bake them yourself, knead 60 grams butter, 50 grams sugar, 60 grams honey, an egg yolk, 190 grams wheat flour, two grams gingerbread spice, 2.5 grams baking soda and a dash of salt into a soft dough, wrap it into a foil and cool it for about an hour. Then roll out the doe to a thickness of four millimeters between two sheets of baking paper. Cut out the figurines with a cookie cutter and put them on baking-paper covered baking sheets. Bake them in a pre-heated fan oven at 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit) for eight to nine minutes.
Let the cookies cool down for 15 minutes. Spread nut-nougat cream such as Nutella on the bottom side of half of the gingerbread men and put the other half of them on top. Mix 50 grams of powdered sugar with a few drops of lemon juice and decorate the gingerbread men with that sugar icing. Store carefully. However, it is best to serve them right away and enjoy the excitement in the eyes of your family. This and many more holiday recipes can be found on www.nutella.de/weihnachten.
