Easy Baked Apples

baked-apples-recipe

It's easy to associate food with seasons. For me, one of the foods that I think of each year when fall approaches are apples. And pumpkin. But more on the pumpkin next week. I don't know about you, but I think fall finally arrived in Northern Virginia yesterday because it was chilly! It's time to break out the blanket scarves, cider, comfort recipes and warm desserts...

Baked apples are a fall favorite and with only a few ingredients, make for quick and delicious fall dessert. Not to mention a fun presentation! Growing up, I always loved getting apple dumplings at the county fair in the town I grew up in, and although these don't have the dough around the apples {which isn't the healthiest but absolutely amazing!} this has been the closest thing I've had to the famous county fair apple dumplings. An easy fall dessert with only a few ingredients, these baked apples are sure to impress!

Baked Apples
An easy fall dessert
Ingredients
  • 4 baking apples
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • vanilla ice cream, if desired
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Wash the apples and dry completely. Core the apples, leaving just enough at the base of the apple to hold the filling. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the cinnamon, brown sugar, butter and pecans. Roll the mixture into a cylinder and place in the core of the apple. Place the apples upright in a baking dish and pour enough water around the apples to just cover the bottom of the dish. Bake for 60 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Top with vanilla ice cream and sauce from the baking dish, if desired. Serve warm and enjoy!
