Baked Apples: a non-recipe
Cut apples in half and use a melon-baller to remove core.
(You could use a knife, but a melon baller is so much easier.)
Place apples cut-side up in a baking dish.
In the hollowed out center of each apple, place a small (about 1/4-1/2 tsp) piece of butter.
Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar.
Sprinkle generously with cinnamon.
Add about 1/2 - 3/4 cup water to the baking dish.
(I pour this in a corner so it doesn't wash the yumminess out of the apples).
Bake @ 350 for 1 hour.
Divide up into single-sized serving containers (one or two halves depending on apple size) and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for 2-3 months.
Microwave on high 1 minute if refrigerated, 2 minutes if frozen.
It truly is a great way to start the morning, or it makes for a wonderful after-school snack for kiddos after a cold walk home from school. Plus you are getting all the wonderful fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and heart-health benefits in a tasty package. After all, you know what they say about an apple a day!
