1 hr 4 servings
Nutty Cheesy

ingredients

  • 2⅗ ounces coarsely grated, high-quality raw marzipan
  • Castello® Double Crème Blue
  • 2⅗ ounces chopped almonds
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 large unpeeled apples, e.g. Jonagold
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 tbsp light cane sugar

Decoration

  • almonds slivers
  • fresh basil leaves

preparation

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

2. Cut the apples into half and remove the core. Cut a thin slice off the ‘round cheek’ of the apples so they stand more securely.

3. Place the apple halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment and spread the filling on the apples’ cut side.

4. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add sugar and beat for 1-2 minutes to a firm consistency.

5. Spread the meringue on top of the cheese filling and bake the apples in the middle of the oven for ½ hour at 300°F. Serve immediately.
