Oven Baked Apples Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Remove stem and wash apples thoroughly. Core apples, removing center down to within 1/2 to 1/4 inch of the bottom.
  • Peel and remove skin from top quarter of apple.
  • Using a knife, score lightly through the skin, moving knife in a circle around outside middle of apple. Scoring will help prevent apples from splitting apart while baking.
  • Evenly space apples in baking dish.
  • Mix water and lemon juice together. Add vanilla if desired. Pour into and over apples letting excess go into baking dish.
  • Divide butter into fourths and place 1/4 in each apple.
  • Divide maple syrup into fourths and pour 1/4 in each apple.
  • Combine cinnamon and nutmeg, mixing together thoroughly. Sprinkle into apples, allowing excess to fall into baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered 35 to 45 minutes or until apples are soft.
  • As apples bake, baste 2 to 3 times with pan juices.
  • Serve warm and garnish if desired with whipped topping.
