Beautiful Baked Apples

It's apple season! Every market has bins and bins of beautiful crisp apples at this time of year. Everyone should have a baked apple recipe in their dessert repertoire because they are quick to prepare, requires no special ingredients, and are just so delicious that you will want to have them every night!  You can also change the recipe depending on your tastes, add raisins or dried cranberries, nutmeg, whatever you like.  The best apples to use for this recipe are baking apples, they are more tart and become soft when cooked. Try McIntosh, Empires, or Granny Smiths. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Serves 4.

4 Apples
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup pecans or walnuts
1 Tablespoon spoon cinnamon
1/4 Cup softened butter

2. Wash and remove the core from the apples. Place in an oven proof dish.
3. In a bowl mix the rest of the ingredients until well combined.
4. Spoon the sugar mixture into the centers of each apple.
5. Bake until the apples are soft. Time will range from 30-60 mins depending on the type of apple.
