Baked apples, stuffed with Watermelon Rind Pickles, seated on buttery pound cake, and drizzled with wine, are inspired by Julia Child. This apple dessert was inspired by Julia Child's Baked Alaska Apples on the French Chef. I'm posting this in honor of that great Leo, Julia Child, on her 100th birthday, August 15, 1912.
Core and peel apples.
Cut off the bottom to make the apple sit flat.
Rub the apples with the lemon and cut off a little of the peel.
Put into a baking dish. Chop the watermelon rind and stuff the centers of the apples.
Put the lemon rind into the baking dish.
Melt the butter and pour half of it and the wine into the baking dish.
Bake the apples at 350 until they can be pierced by a knife without resistance, basting every fifteen minutes.
Toast the pound cake slices and drizzle with the remaining butter. Top each slice with an apple and pour the juices in the baking dish over.
*Recipe adapted from Julia Child's Baked Alaska Apples on the French Chef.
This recipe works very well for using a smaller Nesco. Just pour the liquid in the bottom of the cookwell, and put the apples on the rack. The apples will stay nice and moist in the Nesco.
