Ingredients

  • 4 apples, cored and peeled
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 5 tablespoons sour cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of ½ lemon, grated
  • 1 tablespoon pastry cream powder or cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish
  • 4 tablespoons cranberry sauce, for serving
  • 4 tablespoons crème fraîche, for serving

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Score the outside of the apples, creating a grid pattern. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, egg yolk, sour cream, salt, vanilla, zest, and pastry cream powder. In another bowl, whip the egg whites using an electric mixer on medium speed and gradually add the sugar until it creates stiff peaks, about 5 minutes. Fold into the base.

Fill the apples with the soufflé mixture. Bake until the apples are tender and the soufflé has risen, about 20-25 minutes. Garnish with powdered sugar and serve each apple warm with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce and 1 tablespoon crème fraîche.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
