No Fall apple recipe collection is complete without baked stuffed apples. The stuffing is sweet and nutty and buttery, the apples truly the taste of Fall. I love these and hope you do too. My Mother used to make them often.
You want firm, fresh apples, but you can use red, yellow, green, or a combination. Everyone has a favorite. I’m partial to my honey crisps, of course!
So take 4 apples. Use a small sharp knife to remove the stems, seeds, and most of the cores. Don’t cut all the way through the bottom, but make a deep well.
In a medium bowl, mix 2T room temp butter with 1/4C packed brown sugar and 1t cinnamon. Add in 1/4C finely chopped pecans. Scoop stuffing evenly into apples. Place in a baking dish and add 1/2C water to the dish.
Bake in a 350 F oven for about 40 minutes or until apples are tender. To serve, scoop pan juices over apples and add that important scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This is a quick, easy Fall dessert everyone will love. It’s easy to double for a larger crowd.
Happy Fall! Cook those apples!
Love, Grammy ❤
