Baked apples make a special breakfast treat on a cold winter morning, or you can put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on them and serve them as a dessert.

Pre-heat oven to 375°. Wash and core apples. Use a spoon to scoop out a small bowl shape, being sure not to go all the way through to the bottom of the apple. You are making a little bowl within the apple in which to place your other ingredients.

Into each apple, pack 1 tablespoon each of the brown sugar, butter, raisin, and cider.

Place apples onto a baking sheet or into a cast iron skillet. Sprinkle chopped walnuts into each apple (skip this ingredient if including pecan sugar cinnamon butter recipe). Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.

Bake 20-30 minutes or until apples are soft.

4 servings


  • 4 apples (any type)
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons pecan sugar cinnamon butter (see previous page for recipe, or substitute plain butter)
  • 4 teaspoons raisins
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (only add if using plain butter)
  • 4 tablespoons sweet apple cider
  • Cinnamon, to taste
