Baked Apples

December 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

Two smells that define the holiday season are: the smell of a Chrismakkuh bush and the smell of cinnamon and apples wafting through the air.  The best part is that this might be the easiest warm dessert to make.  Topped with a scoop of vanilla, it is the perfect ending to a winter meal.


  • apples (the crispier and sweeter, the better — I used Gala)
  • butter (unsalted)
  • sugar
  • cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Core the apples from the top so that there is a cone shaped opening at the top of each one. Arrange apples in a deep pie pan.  Place 1/4 teaspoon of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon into each cored apple.

Bake on the highest rack of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the apples are thoroughly soft.

Serve apple by itself or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The hot and cold combination is truly amazing.
