Directions for: Thanksgiving Baked Apples


1 baking apple (ex. Cortland, Pink Lady, Granny Smith or Crispin)

1 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp brown sugar

¼ tsp cinnamon

1 tsp walnuts or pecans, chopped

1 tsp golden raisins

pinch salt

maple syrup


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Peel the top of each apple and core with a melon baller, leaving the base intact.

3. Mix together the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nuts, raisins and salt.

4. Pack the mixture in the centre of the apple. It can spill out the top. (You may have leftover, depending on size of apple.)

5. Place apple in a small casserole dish with ¼ cup apple juice. Bake for about 40 minutes or until apples are fragrant and soft. Brush peeled portion of apple with maple syrup halfway through, as well as 5 minutes before done.

6. Serve warm.
