Baked Bourbon Apples

You should make this dessert immediately. Forget what you’ve heard that when you diet you must stay away from booze and desserts and make this. There’s butter, apples, oats, and bourbon and it doesn’t require fat pants. In fact it is pretty guilt free coming in under 200 calories. It’s a dessert to pull out when you have friends over or want to impress someone special. I mean it has bourbon baked right in. Topped with some vanilla ice cream and it’s pretty dreamy. It is also completely appropriate to serve for weekend brunch and you can be sure your guests will leave happy. Don’t like bourbon? You can just use more apple cider or substitute in another alcohol. Dark rum would be delicious.
