Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of apples are best to use?
I highly recommend the Honeycrisp variety. These apples are very crunchy and they hold up well during the baking process. Fuji apples also work really well. Just don’t use a soft apple (like Red Delicious) because softer apples tend to get mushier when baked.
