Imagine if apple crisp, cool vanilla ice cream, and boozy bourbon all were married into one delicious bite. The house will smell of warm spices and vanilla, and you'll wonder how you've not thought of this combination before on your own. Well, that's what we discovered in this stand-out baked apple recipe. Blogger Jessica Menchant of How Sweet It Is is responsible for this delicious creation. It can be put together in a mere hour or so, with most of the time inactive cooking time. For the best results, use a nice, firm baking apple like a Granny Smith or the Honeycrisp apples, which are really nice this time of year if you can get ahold of them. If you're not a bourbon drinker, Jessica recommends spiced rum as equally nice. We think an apple brandy like Calvados would be pretty special, too.
