Apples, Apples Everywhere!

It’s fall in New England and that can only mean one thing, APPLES!!!  And, if your counter looks anything like mine, it is covered with apples.

Now, I think you’ll agree that there is nothing quite like a fresh, crisp, juicy apple.  But, when its cold and dreary, like it has been these past few days, something sweet and warm is the perfect remedy to chase the chill.  Try these delicious apple recipes and kill two birds with one stone!

Baked Apples – simple, fast, easy and the perfect dessert

Ingredients

  • 6 apples, cut in half and cored
  • cinnamon
  • 3 tsp grass fed butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cut and core apples.
  3. Place face up in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Fill the center of each apple with 1/2 tsp butter.
  5. Sprinkle each apple with cinnamon.
  6. Bake until apples are soft, 15-35 min depending on the size of your apples.
  7. Serve warm.

These apples are perfect on their own, but if you are feeling particularly indulgent, try a drizzle of maple syrup or a scoop of coconut ice cream.

Get home late and dont have time to wait for baked apples to come out of the oven?  Or, maybe you’d rather have your treat in the morning 🙂  Try this instead…
