How to Cook Caramelized Apples

  1. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.
  2. Use an apple corer to remove the cores of the apples.
  3. Place them in 2 separate ramekins, and add them inside a small baking tray.
  4. Place the rosemary sprigs inside the apples, and top them with brown sugar and cognac.
  5. Slide the tray into the oven and bake them for the next 20 minutes.
  6. Take them out of the oven and slice them in halves.
  7. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and pour the apple syrup left from the apples. Bring it to a boil, place the apples in the skillet skin-side up and pour the vodka.
  8. Use a lighter to flambe the vodka. Cook the apples until the flame disappears. (If you don’t feel up to, you can skip the flambe part).
  9. When serving the apples, take out the rosemary, and serve them with a few raisins on top.
  10. If you want, you can sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
