In the September issue of Cooking Light Magazine, there was a recipe that stood out called Hasselback Baked Apples and I couldn’t WAIT to make it myself; especially since it’s apple picking season. The name ‘hasselback’ comes from the restaurant where they first introduced a recipe for hasselback potatoes in the 1940s in Hasselbacken, Stockholm (Sweden). The restaurant opened in 1748 and the dish was called hasselbackspotatis; which were whole potatoes that were peeled and sliced to make them look like a fan.

Today, many people have used the name ‘hasselback’ to describe any food that is fanned out in such a way, like these Hasselback Bakd Apples. When selecting apples for this recipe, make sure they are firm. Cooking Light suggested Pink Lady or Honeycrisp; which are the apples I used in this recipe as varieties such as Fuji or Granny Smith apples will fall apart.

Select your apples, core them using an apple corer, cut them in half; then peel the skins. Place the apples flat side down in a baking dish and make slits in the apple about 1/4-inch thick slicing three-quarters of the way down. Don’t slice all the way through.

Once you make the slices, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, oats and melted butter in a small bowl and spread over the apples. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes; then uncover and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until the apples are soft.
