Baked apples filled with marzipan are super delicious as a dessert after a festive dinner such as the Christmas dinner. In a previous article we featured the German Roasted Goose which is the absolute traditional German Christmas meal. You can serve the baked apples with whipped cream, vanilla sauce or vanilla ice cream. In German we call the dessert “Bratapfel”. The smell alone when the apples are baking in the oven, is captivating! You can buy the marzipan online and it should not contain any sugar. Happy Baking!
