Hazelnut Apple Supreme

I was going to make a basic apple pie. Then, this beautiful green squash in the garden was calling out my name! Instead of a pie crust, you can fill a squash with fruit filling. For a lot of people out there who don't feel like making and rolling out dough, this is a piece of cake...well, a piece of squash, actually! :)

Roasted Hazelnuts
Apple Strudel filling
  • Roast some hazelnuts in a shallow pan at about 375 until golden - about 15 minutes
  • Chop in a mini processor and set aside
  • Cut the top off a squash, and take out the insides (just like for a jack o'lantern)
  • Fill the squash with the apple strudel filling
  • Bake the filled squash at 375 for about 15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the roasted hazelnuts on top for the last 5 minutes

This is an easy, eye opening, delicious dessert for a party or get together.
