The Perfect Fall Dessert to Make with White Wine

Nothing says fall like apples. Head to your local orchard and go apple picking, then use them to make this fall themed dessert.

Our white wine-baked apples recipe is not only delicious, but it requires a cup of white wine. So open a bottle of Mac’s Creek Blue Heron wine to make the dish, then have a glass or two while it’s baking.

Or use the extra to make more, whichever you prefer.

You will need:

  • 8 baking apples, such as golden delicious, cored
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of Mac’s Creek Blue Heron white wine
  • 16 teaspoons sugar


Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. The, arrange the apples in a small roasting pan and add 1/4 cup of water. Fill each apple cavity with about 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Drizzle with Mac’s Creek Blue Heron wine and sprinkle each with about 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Cover the apples loosely and bake for around 45 minutes, until barely tender. Uncover and bake for 15 to 25 minutes longer, until apples are tender but still hold their shape. Serve with he pan juices.
