This is the recipe Maman made for us 4 girls, throughout our childhood. It was a healthy dessert that we loved (each apple is stuffed with some sweet homemade concoction of dried fruits and nuts) and that didn't make her feel like she was feeding us too much artificial sweets. Bon appetit!
Serves 6 l Difficulty: very easy l Prep time: 20min l Total time: 50min
1/2 cup butter
6 dried prunes
6 dried apricots
10 pecan nuts
2 tablespoons honey

1. Peal, wash and core apples, leaving enough of the core at the base of the apple to contain the filling.
