They are so easy to make and AB-SO-LUTELY delicious! Here is a step-by-step from me to you, so that you can make them and see for yourselves why I’m a believer.

step one : Preheat your oven.

375.

step two : Choose your apple.

I prefer honeycrisp for all my apple-cooking needs, but there are so many delicious choices out there from Braeburn to Gala to good ol’ fashioned Granny-Smith.

step three : Prep the apples.

Use an apple corer to remove the core from the center of the apple (or just use a paring knife if, like me, you don’t own one). Use a peeler to go just around the middle portion of the apple (this prevents the apples from splitting while baking).

step four : Fill your apples with yummy goodness.

Place your apples in an ungreased baking dish. To fill your apples, you can use 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar (depending on your sweet tooth) per apple + 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Mix it in a small bowl and then fill each apple with that ratio. Top each apple with 1 tablespoon of butter and fill the baking dish with 1/4″ of water.

step five : Baking time!

Bake your apples in your preheated oven for 30-40 minutes. You’ll know they are done when they are tender when pierced with a fork. They will also look something like this . .
