Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful, loving, caring Mothers in our world. If it weren’t for Mothers, we wouldn’t be the people we are today. I am so thankful everyday for the love and support from my Mom. I am so lucky to have my Mom as a best friend, I am truly blessed!
I made baked apples with dates, almonds and rum for Mother’s day dessert, after a delicious pasta dish my Dad made. I found the recipe off of the Epicurious website!
This was an easy recipe, full of flavour and healthy ingredients. I would definitely recommend this dessert! I served it with a dollop of whipped cream, but I think the next time I will try vanilla ice cream.
I ended up baking them for an hour at 350 degrees. I kept tinfoil over the apples for about 35 minutes and then took the foil off to let it bake for the last half hour. Once I took them out of the oven I let them sit for about 10 minutes before serving them, I didn’t want them to be too hot. They were absolutely delicious.
The hints of lemon were very strong, but a sweet lemon. I couldn’t taste the rum, and the dates were not that strong either. It was overall perfectly balanced with all the tastes.
