Baked Apples

Pujols Kitchen - Friday, September 02, 2016

Apple Season is just around the corner. When you want something sweet but not a heavy dessert, baked apples are just the thing. They take just 5 minutes to make and the end result is sweet, tender apples with a delicious pecan filling. Top yours with low fat vanilla ice cream and a little drizzle from your favorite homemade caramel sauce. It’s perfection. 


Ingredients


  • 4 good-quality apples (We prefer red apples, but baking apples like Granny Smith work well too!)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 TBSP butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Caramel sauce, for topping, optional
  • Low-fat Vanilla Ice cream, for topping, optional

Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Remove apple stems and seeds and make a deep hole where the filling will go.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and mix well. Add the nuts and then spoon mixture evenly into each of the apples.
  3. In a small baking dish, add water and place apples on top.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and allow to cool before eating.
  5. Serve with low-fat vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, if desired.
