The maple syrup in this recipe makes a great sauce for the baked apples. Super easy to make!
- 6 firm baking apples (Sugar Crisp, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith work well.)
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup real maple syrup (using the real syrup makes all the difference in taste.)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and core the apples and place in a buttered baking dish.
Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour the hot mixture over the apples and place in the oven.
Bake for 1 hour, basting after first 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold. A dollop of whipped cream is a delicious, but optional topping.
