Tips for Making this Recipe

  • I find an apple corer incredibly helpful when making this recipe, but you can also use a knife, just make sure to cut out any woody bits and seeds from the center.
  • Test the doneness of the apple before removing them from the oven. If they aren’t fork-tender, let them bake for another 5 minutes and check again.
  • If your sauce becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of hot water to it and it will loosen up.
  • The apples are delicious on their own, but they’d be wonderful served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

We hope you enjoy these wonderful baked apples!
