1 hr 4 servings

ingredients

  • 150 g Castello® Creamy Blue
  • 75 g coarsely grated, high-quality raw marzipan
  • 75 g chopped almonds
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 large unpeeled apples, e.g. jonagold
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 tbsp of light cane sugar

Garnish

  • almonds slivers
  • fresh basil leaves

preparation

1. Cut the Castello® Creamy Blue cheese into small pieces and mix well with the marzipan, almonds and basil.

2. Cut the apples into halves and remove the core. Cut a thin slice off the ‘round cheek’ of the apples so they stand more securely. Place the halved apples on a baking sheet lined with grease-proof paper and spread the cheese & marzipan filling on the apples’ cut side.

3. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar and beat for 1-2 minutes more until stiff peaks form.

4. Spread the meringue on top of the cheese filling and bake the apples in the middle of the oven for ½ hour at 150°C. Garnish with the almond slivers and basil leaves. Serve immediately.
