Baked Hasselback Apples

By Traeger Kitchen

This accordion-style dessert will have you singing about Traeger’s wood-fired flavor all day long. And, here’s a pro tip–when slicing the apples place wooden skewers on each side of the apples when slicing. The knife will stop at the skewers and your slices will be exactly the same size.
