Oh, thank goodness. Quick, easy, elegant, and tasty. Those are all pretty good adjectives for a dessert, aren't they? After some relatively big baking projects, it was nice to whip these up on a busy weeknight. I think, after all the stress I've been under at work, that Jessica read my mind. I needed something quick and simple. Needed.
So in the interest of having the post reflect the dessert, this one will be short and sweet. Not elegant, because I'm not really that way. Sorry, I swear like a sailor, use sarcasm and irony way too much, and like jeans, t-shirts, and sweatshirts. I'm pretty sure that's three strikes right there. No weekend wearing of pretty sundress and high heels is going to make up for that, although hopefully it mitigates it a bit. Oh yeah, and not the tasty bit either. 'Cause, um, that'd be a little awkward, doncha think?
Two notes: I used Braeburn apples which were pretty sweet to begin with. Nice and crisp though. Since they were sweet, I forswore the brown sugar and butter on top and just drizzled some honey over them pre-bake. If you go that route, I'd just suggest drizzling enough that the top of the apples doesn't dry out in the oven. I probably could have used a bit more than I did.
