Baked Apple Dessert Instructions

Choose Your Apples

Select firm, tart apples such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp for the best results. Wash and dry them thoroughly before proceeding.

Core the Apples

Using an apple corer or a small knife, carefully remove the cores from the apples, leaving the bottom intact to hold the filling.

Prepare the Filling

In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. This aromatic blend will infuse the apples with sweet and spicy flavors.

Stuff the Apples

Fill each cored apple with the prepared filling mixture, packing it tightly into the cavity. You can also add chopped nuts or dried fruits for extra texture and flavor.

Dot with Butter

Place a small pat of butter on top of each filled apple to add richness and moisture as they bake.

Bake to Perfection

Arrange the stuffed apples in a baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the filling is bubbling.

Baste Occasionally

During baking, spoon the juices from the bottom of the pan over the apples occasionally to ensure they stay moist and flavorful.

Serve Warm

Once baked, remove the apples from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Drizzle with caramel sauce or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent touch.

Enjoy Your Sweet Treat

Serve the baked apples warm and enjoy the comforting flavors of cinnamon and spice. They're perfect on their own or paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
