Baked Apples Baked Apples

Cook Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
6 same-size Granny Smith apples
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 teaspoon-size pieces
1 cup apple juice
6 sprigs fresh mint





Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Core apples, making sure not to puncture the bottom of the apples so that the juices will remain. Remove skin from 1/2-inch around top of apples at the opening. Fill each cavity with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter. Place apples in casserole dish and pour apple juice around them. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh mint, and serve.

I wish I could give this recipe 10***! Another winner, Paula! My mother has Alzheimer's Disease and can no longer remember how to make delicious baked apples. Now, thanks to you, I am able to bake them for her - you have no idea what that means to me! Thank you, Paula, and thank your precious family for sharing with us and for all you mean to us all! You're wonderful! Debbie Collinge
