Easy Dessert For When You Don't Have All Day

I love to bake, but I don't have all day sometimes. Our lovely friends, Shelly and Jerome come over for dinner quite often and I like to have something for us all for dessert. This one is delicious and simple. I think you'll find it on the menu rotation quite a bit. :) Serve it with some vanilla ice cream.

Baked Apples
  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cold
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Core the apples and peel a ring of the core off the center of each apple. In a small bowl, mix together the butter and the brown sugar until combined. Stuff each apple with 1/4 of the mixture and sprinkle with the cinnamon and chopped pecans.

Stand each apple up in the baking dish and add water to the pan (just enough to cover the bottom of the dish). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the apples are soft.
