Baked Apples Stuffed With Frozen Custard

BAKED APPLES STUFFED WITH FROZEN CUSTARD

These bakers can be used for applesauce by removing all the pulp after they’ve been baked and combining it with the juices left in the baking dish. Or, they can be stuffed after they’re baked and chilled with a frozen custard, then drizzled with a Creamy Orange Ginger Sauce, then sprinkled with Crystallized Ginger Pine Nut Topping as we did here – this time!
