The apple baked in pastry is one of the most popular Ukrainian desserts – a real classic of national cuisine. Its ingredients are exclusively natural and very beneficial products as apples, honey and walnuts. The mix of honey and walnuts gives the dessert an inimitable fragrance.
Some housewives prefer to add raisins and dried apricots into the stuffing, the other might stir some jam, caramel, or toffee therefore the apple will be sweeter. It depends on imagination and preferences. It’s better to choose not sweet apples with hard pulp so the dish will be excellent. If one bakes apples without pastry, the fruits will lose their fragrance because the pastry is a so-called protection that helps to catch the smell.
