Maple Planked Apples with Honey Basil Chèvre

Maple Planked Apples with Honey Basil Chèvre

This late sweet treat makes a great appetizer, side, or dessert.

Serves – 8 
Total Time – 45 minutes

Tip – Shave off a little from the underside of each apple half to give them some stability on the plank.


  • Maple Grilling Planks
  • 4 Apples
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey
  • 8 oz. Chèvre
  • ½ cup fresh Raspberries
  • 3 Tbsp. Basil leaves, sliced thin
  • pinch Black Pepper


  1. Preheat the grill or oven to 450˚ F and soak the planks in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Cut the apples in half from stem to flower. Cut off a little from the undersides to allow the apples to sit flat.
  3. Use a spoon or melon baller to remove the core from each half leaving a hollow cavity.
  4. Gently warm up the honey and brush all over the apples to prevent discoloring.
  5. Combine the goat cheese, basil, and pepper. Mix well and fill each apple evenly. Top with berries.
  6. Set the apples on the plank and place on grill for 20 – 25 minutes or until the apples are soft.
  7. Drizzle all over with more honey and serve immediately.
