Didn't enjoy this, despite looking forward to it for ages. Too sweet, mincemeat overpowered the other flavours, apples turned to mush. The saving grace is that it was easy too make, but I wouldn't bother again.

Best baked apple recipe I've tasted. Didn't leave it to stand to cool but instead topped each one with a scoop of homemade Armagnac ice cream. Delicious.
