Classic Baked Apples
PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 45 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 1 HOUR
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups of water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Starting from the apple stem, use a paring knife to remove cores from each apple, leaving the bottom of the apple intact to create a hollow bowl-like interior. Place each prepared apple into a 9×13 baking dish.
In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans. Spoon into the center of each apple to fill to the top.
Place 1/2 tablespoon of butter on top of each apple center. Pour water into the bottom of the baking dish so that the apples sit in the water and steam.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until apples are soft. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Instead of cutting the core from the apple to create a bowl, some may find it easier to slice the apple in half. Then remove the core from each half and scoop out a little bowl-like shape to hold your filling.
