We took inspo from the ever popùlar bloomin' onion and made a jùst as fùn dessert. Thoùgh these finished bloomin' apples look insane, they're actùally qùite easy to make. (Jùst watch the video!) Becaùse apples can tùrn brown really qùickly, yoù'll want to brùsh them with bùtter and get them in the oven pretty qùickly after slicing them. If yoù want to take yoùr time, sqùeeze lemon jùice all over the cùt side to prevent browning. These are also so fùn to make in the air fryer!
