Muhaha~~ Raise your hand if you can tell me what is synonymous with fall. Well, besides the awesome cooler temps and beautiful fall foliage. I’m talking apples, y’all. I love ’em and now’s the best time of year to enjoy them! This baked apples also remind me of the step-mom of Snow White. Whereby she put all the potion in the pot and make a poison apple. You won’t die eating this like Snow White but you will just get addicted to it and wanted more.

So to celebrate fall’s arrival and the start of apple season, I’m sharing the hands down best-baked apple recipe that I’ve ever eaten.  And on a side note, if you’ve never tried Honeycrisp apples, you are definitely missing out. They’re a bit more expensive that other apple varieties, but oh let me tell you – they are so, so worth it.  They’re everything that their name implies – sweet and crisp!

When come to choosing apples for this recipes. A relatively new variety, Honeycrisps have a sweet, mellow flavor. They’re very juicy, and when baked long and slow, their juices bubble and caramelize. These baked apples are best served slightly warm, but they are also great served cold for breakfast the next morning, topped with a dollop of yogurt.

Ingredients |
  • 4 – Honeycrisp apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried raisins

Preheat oven to 200 °C.

Slice approximately 1/3 off of the top of the apples and scoop out the core, leaving a well in the center.

In a bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins and walnuts (using a spoon or fork) until blended.

Stuff each apple with 1/4 of brown sugar mixture.

Place apples in a deep baking dish, topping each apple with 1 tbsp of butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Pour about 1/2″ of water into the baking pan, around the apples, and bake for 50 – 60 minutes, until apples are tender.

Serve warm.

Notes from two sisters | Keep an eye on the water level when baking. Add more water, if needed, to prevent the apples from drying out.
