Servings 8


For the Honey Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter

For the garnish:

  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • crystallized ginger slivers


For the honey syrup:

  • Combine 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 cup water and 2 tablespoons butter in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Keep warm to brush on apples.

For the filling:

  • Crumble Lebkuchen into small pieces and place into a bowl. Add crystallized ginger and nuts. Melt honey and butter in microwave together and add to bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.

For the gingerbread apples:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Core the apples without cutting through the base. With a knife or melon baller, remove some of the inside of the apple to make room for the filling. Place apples in a 12 x 7.5 x 2 inch baking dish. Spoon the prepared filling into the opening in the apples, packing it down lightly.
  • Brush apples liberally with honey syrup and pour remainder around apples. Bake uncovered at 375° F for 45 minutes or until the apples are tender, basting occasionally. Let cool for 15 minutes. Whip cream with powdered sugar. Serve apples with a dollop of whipping cream and garnish with slivers of crystallized ginger.
