How ‘Bout Them Apples?

Bake your apples for a delicious treat.

baked apple hot and fresh from the oven

One of my favorite autumn desserts is also one of the simplest I know of. A baked apple served fresh from the oven could bring a smile to the grouchiest of faces. If you go downstairs and start one right now, you could be eating it in 45 minutes.

Baked Apples

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Core one large apple per person. Put each in an oven-safe baking dish

Mix together 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons allspice, 1 teraspoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon cloves, 1/4 teaspoon cardamom.

Sprinkle enough sugar and spice mixture into each apple core hole to fill it. Save any remaining for future use.

Melt 1-2 tablespoons butter per apple. Pour over apple, making sure to get some into the spice core.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until the skin splits and the apple is soft and cooked through. Serve with heavy cream or maple-walnut ice cream if desired.
