‘Tis the Season – for Baked Apples!
A Holiday Recipe by Janet Zappala
I love this baked apples recipe. It’s simple and clean, not to mention mouthwatering and delicious!
What you’ll need:
- 4 organic red delicious apples, washed, unpeeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- Pinch of nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons apple cider or apple juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Whipped cream or non-fat whipped topping
- 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans toasted.
Preheat oven to 350°. Place the apple pieces in a 13 x 9” baking dish, set it aside.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the honey, nutmeg, apple cider or juice, and cinnamon. Stir constantly until the ingredients are thoroughly combined and are a toasty brown color. Pour the mixture over the apples, mixing thoroughly to coat.
Bake for 12 minutes. Top the baked apples with the toasted nuts and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve warm and enjoy!
Happy holidays to you and yours!
