Easy Baked Apples

    I seriously have a soft spot for warm baked apples. I may have passed that on because the boys have been putting in requests for me to make apple pie the last few days. E-man even goes as far as to list off all the ingredients he thinks we would need to fix up a good pie.
  
   Unfortunately, I went on a vacation and I've still got some residual laziness left over from beach bumming it. 

 No way I'm making apple pie from scratch in the next few days. It's alright though.... I've got a few tricks up my sleeve. 

   To appease my son's sweet tooth I whipped up an easy Baked Apple Dessert that was pretty much effortless and satisfied everyone's craving for apple pie. Also, my house smelled pretty darn awesome.



Easy Baked Apples

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple per person 
  • A pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg,salt and brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel, core and slice apple. This is a breeze if you're a kitchen nerd like me and have an apple-peeling-coring-slicing-gizmo.
 Rub the apple, getting in between the slices, with the spices and put in a ramekin, small baking dish, or muffin tin depending on what you have and how many you need.
 Stuff 1 tablespoon of butter down the hole where the core had been. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the apple is nice and soft.
 We ate ours right out of the ramekins, but I'm sure you could plate it with a little vanilla ice cream if you wanted for extra goodness!
