This little jewel is an heirloom apple brought to Quebec by the earliest French settlers. Burnished yellow, sweet and firm, it is the perfect choice for my bring-on-the-memories Apple Oh! Bites. Tastes just like a Caramel Apple but made with ingredients that will start your holiday “baking” off at a healthier pace and a fraction of the work!
You will need a food processor in which to mix the following ingredients until
If the dough seems too dry add a couple drops of water.
1 ½ cups pitted dates
1 cup oven dried (no sulfates!) cored and thinly sliced Golden Russet Apples. I picked mine at www.lesvergersfrancoisjuneau.com . Leave the skin on. It’s good for you. To learn how to oven dry them go to YouTube or Google it like I did. Not complicated.
1 cup good quality salted caramel chips or callets érables. I walked up to purchase mine at www.lacabossedor.com
Option: ½ cup walnuts or pecans
Form the sticky dough into small balls or roll flat between parchment and cut into squares. Makes 20 balls or 16 squares. Store them in the refrigerator or freezer, give them to friends who will be really impressed and say “OH!!” or you can eat them all right away!
