So last week, I think it was, I noticed some apples at the bottom of my fridge that were ripe and needed a makeover before they went bad. I had about 5 medium/small apples. I'm not sure what kind they were. Either Golden Delicious or Granny Smith. But anyways... on to the super yummy apple goodness!
I found a recipe in a Taste of Home Mom's Best Meals cookbook I got for Christmas a few years ago. Really good and easy recipes for anyone looking for a good book! So here's the tweaked recipe.
Baked Apple Slices
5 medium/small sized apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon apple spice
1/4 cup water
1 stick butter
1/2 cup walnuts or raisins (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350. Place sliced apples in a greased deep baking dish. Combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, and water. Pour over apples. Slice butter over apples. Sprinkle with nuts or raisins if desired. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve over ice cream or just eat plain!
Yield: 4 servings
Mmmm! Yummy! They were really good. Can't wait to make them again!
