I found this recipe in my mother's old cooking book which she brought with her from Europe.

It is unusual in that she has very few desserts in the book, however I trust I have translated this correctly from the German it was written in, as it was such a great taste sensation!

I used Granny Smith apples as they are not so sweet, and the combination of these tart apples, and the sweet almond paste, is a delightful one.

It is rather an unusual looking dessert to serve to visitors, and mine were very taken with the look AND the taste!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 3 servings

Ingredients
3 apples -I used Granny Smiths
1 tbsp melted butter
4 tbsp bread crumbs -Panko if possible

For the almond paste
cup almonds
cup sugar
1/8 cup water
egg white
Few drops of almond extract (optional)

Method
Preheat the oven to 160 fan forced.

In a food processor, grind the almonds (not too fine),

Add the sugar and blend until well mixed.

Add the water, egg white and almond extract.

Peel the apples, and if you have an apple corer/slicer, cut the apple into 8.

Leave a bit of the peel on the bottom as the apples will not separate totally then

Apple is held together at the bottom by the skin


If you do not have one of these gadgets, core the apple, and slice into 8 sections, taking care not to cut through the bottom as this makes it easier to assemble.

Line a baking pan with baking paper.

Put some of the almond paste between each piece of the apple.

Close the apple up by making the pieces stick to each other. This in turn, will again look like a whole apple.

Don't spread it too thick or you will have trouble closing the apple


I then put the remainder of the almond paste mix into the middle of the apple.

Place apples on the baking dish, brush with the melted butter and coat with the bread crumbs.

Put in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.

Delicious and also great to eat cold on future days.
