What to do with Blood Orange --- Baked Apple!

How cool is this for Thanksgiving!  You will be a star :-)

You can also use a store bought Puff pastry for a quick dessert. 


  • 1 recipe Olive Oil Pie Dough (you can make yourself or buy)
  • 4 large baking apples, washed (Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, or Pink Lady are great)
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ flour
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp ground Cinnamon, divided
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan Salt
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon Pear Balsamic
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp large grain golden sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375*F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Core apples, then scoop out more to allow enough room to stuff apples. In a small bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients for a cumble mixture.
  2. Roll out pie dough ¼" thick, in as close to a rectangle shape as possible. Cut pastry into 4 even pieces and set aside (or use a pre-cut pastry)
  3. Place each cored apple in the center of the pastry
  4. Fill each cored apple with gently packed stuffing...careful not to pack too tightly or the apple won't bake evenly.
  5. Fold corners of dough up above the apple, stretching if needed
  6. Twist dough together at the top and press down side of apple. Repeat for all the apples and place them onto prepared baking sheet.
  7. Chill pastry wrapped apples in freezer for 10 minutes then bake apples for 30 minutes. Cool on a baking rack then serve with a scoop of your favorite ice cream
