STUFFED BAKED APPLES

  • 4 large apples, cored (I like McIntosh, or Red Delicious for this recipe)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • ½ cup oatmeal (any kind, instant or quick cook) 
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon grated, fresh nutmeg 
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, cut into pieces 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 

Sprinkle cored apples with lemon juice. Mix all ingredients and stuff apples. The stuffing mixture will be crammed in, and appear to overflow … that is just fine!  Bake 20 minutes in a small casserole dish. You can serve with fresh whipping cream, vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt to turn this into a fall dessert!
