Stuffed Apples With Gluten Free SnickerDoodle Bunny Crumble
Looking for a new way to bake squash in a kid-friendly way?

Here's the great recipe for your kids.

Stuffed Apples With Gluten Free SnickerDoodle Bunny Crumble


3 1/2 cups cubed butternut squash (a medium sized squash)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 to 3 tablespoons water
3 large apples, cut in half
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 whole cinnamon sticks
1 cup Annie’s Gluten Free SnickerDoodle Bunny Cookies


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Toss squash with olive oil, nutmeg and salt. Spread onto a large baking sheet. Roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring squash until it can be easily pierced with a fork and is soft.

Meanwhile, prepare apples by removing seeds and creating a hole about 1 inch deep in the middle of each half with a melon baller.
Add butter to a 1o inch cast iron skillet (or heavy baking dish) and place it in the oven for about 1 minute to melt it.

Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon, brown sugar and cinnamon sticks.
Place apples cut side down in the skillet so they are not touching. Move the squash if not quite cooked through to the bottom rack and put the skillet on the middle rack of the oven.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, until apples are softened, but not completely mushy. (You still want them to be able to stand up when you flip them over.)
Remove apples and squash from the oven when both are done. Using a spatula, flip apples up to stop them from cooking.

Add squash to a food processor or blender with the maple syrup and process until smooth, adding a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
Pipe squash into holes of the apple with a decorating gun or just spooning it in.

Finish with crushed SnickerDoodle Bunny Cookies and drizzle some of the juices left in the cast iron skillet over the top.
This recipe can be made one day ahead of time (without the crumble added to the top), just reheat it warm in the oven for 7 minutes, then add topping.
