Just to confirm, I keep the apples whole correct? Just trim the base. Or can I halve them if I don't have an apple corer and just use a paring knife to remove the core, would that work? I plan to use figs instead of sultanas as my sister doesn't enjoy sultanas. Finally, TMILLSSTANDARD: having never used alcohol in my desserts before (I just drink it) is ok in the oven or do I need to 'cook' it off first? Merry Christmas and thanks in advance to any that can help. Ruj.
This is an excellent recipe. I did change slightly...peel the apples if you don't care for the skin. Just cover for first 3/4 of baking then uncover last ten or so minutes. I also drizzled each apple with a small amount of cinnamon sugar and Maker's Mark whiskey.
