I Love The Cold Weather

7:30PM
Its November 1st and its time for baking and such!
I love the cold weather and the smell of baked yummys from the oven.
Today I walked over to the Asian market and picked up two large red apples, pulled out the brown sugar and cinnamon and found this recipe for baked apples. Simple and easy treat for after dinner.

8:10PM
OK, So we just pulled out the apples from the oven, Oh my goodness, soooooooo delicious! We ate half with some ice cream and saving half for lunch tomorrow.
The cinnamon and brown sugar are perfect together and joined with the apple it taste just like a apple pie, without all the hard work!
Also all these flavors brought out a great smell and filled up the whole house and its just wonderful!

I can't wait to try this recipe with peaches and raspberry!

  • 4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.
2 In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with a dot of butter (1/4 of the Tbps).
3 Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
Serve warm with vanilla icecream on the side.
Makes 4 servings.
