Nothing says loving like some apples baking in the oven. My Mom used to make whole baked apples as a special treat when I was a little girl. And I will never forget how excited I would become when I would notice their sweet aroma coming down the hall. Sometimes natures most basic gifts are the best.
2 large Baeburn apples (cored/ thickly sliced)
1 T. of real unsalted butter (chopped)
3 T. of light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. of ground nutmeg
2/3 cup of apple juice
1 tsp. of fresh lemon juice
-Preheat oven to 350*. Combine all ingredients in a small baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour or until the apples are super soft. Serve alongside a great meal or with ice cream for dessert. Serves 4. Enjoy!
