What’s more comforting than a warm apple pie? Nothing. Well, maybe this Spiced Grilled Apple recipe. It’s more comforting because you don’t need to do much work – and laziness is comfortable.
Spiced Grilled Apple Recipe
Ingredients (serves one):
- 1 large apple
- 1 heaping teaspoon brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon rum or bourbon (optional, but you know you want it.)
Step 1: Assemble your ingredients; preheat your grill to medium heat
Step 2: Slice the apple horizontally and core it; mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and rum or bourbon in a small bowl.
Step 3: Place a large square of parchment paper on top of a large square of aluminum foil. Put the apple on top, and pour the mixture (from step 2) into the apple.
Step 4: Wrap the parchment paper around the apple, and then secure it with the foil.
Step 5: Cook the apple for about 20-30 minutes, rotating it occasionally. For ultimate time-saving/laziness, grill it while your dinner is cooking, and keep it on the warming rack until it’s time for dessert.
Step 6: Unwrap the apple and transfer it to a plate. Top it with ice cream or whipping cream, if desired (oh, it’s desired alright), and serve warm.
