Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 1 hour

Servings: 6



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


Preheat oven to 325 °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.
