Baked Apples

I am a sucker for all things warm and sweet. These baked apples are no exception. They are oh so gooey good! Try them out as a dessert, eat along with some scones for breaky or throw them in the oven on a cold rainy night.


4 large baking apples (use more if your apples are little)

1/4 cup butter

1/4 brown sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

1/4 cup crushed nuts

1/4 your choice of honey, caramel, or maple syrup



Preheat oven to 350°F

Cut the tops off your apples (like little lids)

Take the core out of your apples – do not go all the way through. I prefer using a paring knife and a spoon to scoop it out, an apple corer works too but isn’t necessary.

In a bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts until incorporated. (I like to give it a little taste at this point o make sure it is perfect and adjust to taste)

Scoop a little of the nut and butter mix into your apples and put the lid back on top.

If you have any butter left over, put it in the baking dish with the apples so they can swim in it.

Bake for 35 – 45 minutes until apples are soft and spoonable but not mushy.
