Baked Apples recipe -How to

Everyone loves apples, well almost. An apple is good as is, but if you want to make it into a dessert, this recipe is for you. Fresh apples are always delicious as they are, but why not put a spin on them and make a tasty dessert?

I have always made a point of eating an "apple a day, which keeps the doctor away", so they say. Baked apples renders a flavor similar to apple pie, without the crust, but it is so good.

If you have a problem with chewing a fresh apple skin, baking will soften the skin. Coring (removing the seeds) and a bit of the skin removed from the top and you are all set to bake your apples.

I also line the bottom of the baking dish with foil to cut down on the clean-up time.

Baked Apples made just for you

You might not be able to eat sugar or butter, you can always substitute and use an artificial sweetener and eliminate the butter. Mix the spices with the powdered sugar substitute and sprinkle into the cored apples.

Use a baking apple, which will not get too soft and have texture when baked. Some apples are sweeter than others but might lose some of the sweet taste when cooked. When removing the seeds from your apples don't go to the very bottom of the apple.

Bake your apples to suit your taste. Low fat ice cream is also a great topping for your baked apples.

      What a delicious and simple recipe! I like that it's healthy and I could use Stevia if I wanted to avoid sugar, although ice cream on the top would make it just perfect. : ) Thanks!
