Bon Femme Good Lady Apples with Cinnamon Whipped Cream @jen_fontaine

Have you ever baked apples at home? Whether it be in a pie or to make homemade apple sauce, the smell of baked apples is one of the most comforting smells one can have in their home, in my opinion! It just makes you want to grab a scarf and comfy booties doesn’t it?

Jennifer Fontaine of Mommy Hiker is sharing with us her recipe for Bon Femme {Good Lady Apples} with Cinnamon Whipped Cream. Not only do I feel instant warmth and comfort just dreaming of this recipe, but I also am head over heels in love with her subtitle: “Rediscovering the beauty of the world through the eyes of my daughter.” As a mommy of two I can so relate. Enjoy her recipe!

Bon Femme Good Lady Apples

6 large apples
1/3 cup apricot jam
1/3 cup light maple syrup
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter

Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
1 Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 teaspoon Confectioner’s Sugar
2 dashes of Cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut a 1/4 inch off the top and bottom of all 6 apples. Make sure the cut you make on the bottom of the apple is pretty level so that the apple can easily sit upright while baking. Carefully core and then score their skins making 3 1/8 of an inch deep lines going down from top to about midway down, spacing them equal distance around its circumference. The scoring allows the skin to expand as the apple bakes, ensuring that you won’t have an exploded appley-apricoty mess to clean up in your oven! Mix the apricot jam and maple syrup in a bowl, place the apples in a baking dish and evenly pour the mixture on top of the apples. Cut the 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter into 6 equal pieces and place 1 piece in the cored hole of each apple. Put the dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, baste, then bake for another 30 minutes.

To make the whipped cream, take a mixing bowl and the mixing blades (or a whisk if you’re not using a mixer) and place them in the freezer for 10 minutes. Ensuring that everything is very cold when you whip the cream will give you the best results! So after your bowl and utensils are chilled, pour the heavy whipping cream into your cold mixing bowl, add the sugar and cinnamon and whip on medium until you can create high stiff peaks (about 2 minutes). Make sure you don’t over-whip it, otherwise it will fall and become creamy).

Dab a dollop of Cinnamon Whipped Cream on top of your Bon Femme and devour!!
