Baked Apples

We are back from our rejuvenating trip to Colorado and

I have some beautiful photos to share with you-

but before I do that I just have to share this little recipe 

with you.

  You see I came back Fall Inspired...

Fall...oh the very thought of cool breezes, fresh apples, 

and leaves changing color delights me. 

And what better way to kick off the Fall Season than 

with an apple dessert.

Using a medium size ramekin filled with apples, sugar and


equals a perfectly enjoyable ending to a Fall meal. 

This baked apple recipe is a favorite of mine because rather than

using the whole apple you bake chunks or slices of your favorite 

apple in a ramekin. 

I am a huge fan of the Granny Smith, I like it's bright green color

and tart flavor.  

Mix that tartness with some sugar and butter and you have a  

winning dessert.


7 Granny Smith Apples
1/2 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoon cinnamon (less or more-your choice)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 stick butter cut into small pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 medium size ramekins buttered
Aluminum foil


Preheat Oven to 400 degrees bake for 30 minutes or until tender.

Cut apples in half, core and peel them.  
Cut them into slices or chunks.
Toss into bowl with sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and vanilla.
Let them sit about 10 minutes to absorb flavor, taste and if they
need a little more of this or that just add it to your personal liking.
Scoop apple mixture into buttered ramekins and dot evenly
with cubed butter.
Cover each ramekin with foil and bake.

These apples are just so tender and flavorful and create their 

own buttery, cinnamon sauce, a melt in your mouth experience. 

Now, grab a spoon and sit back and enjoy and I was just thinking

wouldn't a dollop of ice cream be a perfect addition to this recipe...

  1. Hey a little vanilla ice cream would go with it great! Looks delish.

  2. What a great dessert and an easy one! I have company coming in a week or so and this would be just perfect. I am anxious to hear about your trip.
    Love ya,

  3. The baked apples look delicious, Jemma. The tartness of the granny apples and the buttery cinnamon sauce make this a yummy dessert. Oh Yes, Fall is in the air around here too, and I just put up my first Fall post, I couldn't resist hehe. I love the way you set up your pictures. You always add a little something extra, which makes your photos so lovely.

    Fall will be here soon, and looking forward to everything it brings.
