Baked Apples

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This simple comfort food recipe for Baked Apples can be made with dark or golden raisins instead of the pecans if you'd like. You could use any kind of nut too - try them with walnuts or cashews.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the top off the apples to make a flat surface. Cut a strip of peel around the apple right next to the cut surface. Cut the core out of the apples, making sure to leave the skin at the bottom intact.

In small bowl combine remaining ingredients except water and lemon juice. Stuff apples with this mixture. Mound any remaining mixture on top of the apples. Place in shallow baking dish and pour 1/3 cup water and lemon juice around apples. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until apples are tender. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.

Easy and Tasty, Guest Pefer not to answer

This is one of my favorites dishes. It was so easy to make my 10 year daughter made a bowl too. My entiere family loved it. Perfect for fall. I don't know if it was how the apples were cooked that made them the best. I mean I've had this in diners but this is way better. If won't empty your wallet either. I LOVE IT!!!!
