It's time to tempt your tummy again ! I was looking through Paula Deens recipes & came across baked apples, I remember how my husbands grandmother would core out apples & add sugar & butter & bake for a quick dessert when company stopped by, this recipe not only brought back sweet memories but made me want to run out for apples lol I think I will try this recipe this weekend

Baked Apples

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 cup sugar 6 same-size Granny Smith apples 2 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 teaspoon-size pieces 1 cup apple juice 6 sprigs fresh mint

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
Core apples, making sure not to puncture the bottom of the apples so that the juices will remain. Remove skin from 1/2-inch around top of apples at the opening. Fill each cavity with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter. Place apples in casserole dish and pour apple juice around them. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh mint, and serve.
Cook Time 15 min

I think you can make these in the microwave as well. Bakes apples are just so good

yes you can Brenda, I use to put granola cereal into a cored out apple & top with butter, cover with clear wrap & microwave, makes a great little apple crisp
