Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

This is an easy dessert that you can prepare ahead of time including coring the apples and splashing them with lemon juice to keep them from browning. Just before grilling assemble your apples, wrap in non-stick aluminum foil and grill for about 20-minutes. It is like having an apple pie without the crust. The raisins and maraschino cherries add a nice sweetness with the walnuts adding a bit of a crunch. Overall it is a great dessert that is easy to make and easy to clean up!

I got the inspiration for this recipe from Camping Recipes: Foil Packet Cooking. I downloaded the recipes to my Kindle so I have them wherever I go! There are a lot of easy recipes to make on your grill and you do not need to be camping to enjoy them!

Grilled Apple unwrapped

4 – 6 Baking Apples such as Pink Ladies
Non-stick aluminum foil

Fruit and Nuts:
½ cup raisins – no need to chop
3 tbsp maraschino cherries, chopped
3 tbsp walnuts, chopped or your favorite nut

2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Core the apples and make a plug with the apple that you remove. If you are not grilling immediately, splash with lemon juice to reduce the browning. When ready to stuff, core the apple a bit larger to add the stuffing. Do not peel the apple! Mix together the fruit and nuts plus spices and ½ cup water. Divide the mixture into each apple, add some butter and wrap each apple in non-stick foil. Grill for about 20 – 30 minutes on medium heat until desired doneness. Serve the grilled apple in the foil because it becomes your plate making easy cleanup!

    It looks very yummy. I’m going to have to try this recipe. I have lots of apples and am looking for ways to use them.

    1. Bernice says:

      They were really good and so easy to make. Plus I like just throwing out the foil afterwards. I have another recipe I am hoping to try this weekend.

  2. Great healthy dessert option.

    1. Bernice says:

      It is a healthy option especially since you can decide how much if any butter to add.

    You’ve used great spices 🙂
    Can I top it with condensed milk?
    Happy Weekend!

    1. Bernice says:

      I did not think to use condensed milk but I don’t see why you couldn’t try! Maybe substitute the condensed milk for the water. Sounds good to me! 🙂

      1. Ema Jones says:

        Yeah, will substitute condensed milk for water.
        Happy Sunday 🙂

      2. Bernice says:

        Thank you! 🙂 Happy Sunday!

      3. Ema Jones says:

        Hey Bernice, what did you prepare this Sunday?

        I have been working on some new wood-grilled recipes that I will be posting maybe later this week. Thanks for asking. 🙂

      Thank you for reblogging to your followers. I hope you and your followers enjoy the simple, healthy dessert!

  5. Lovely idea…and I like that it retains all the juices from the fruit:)

    1. Bernice says:

      That is a good point. All the juices are captured within the foil. 🙂

    This looks fantastic! Any idea if the oven would work as well?

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you – it was really good. 🙂 I would think you could bake it in the oven. Most likely I would keep it wrapped so it does not dry out. Hope it works out for you!
