baked apples! . . .

DSCN9394A friend gave me some freshly picked baked apples a few weeks ago. I cored them and stuffed the apples with a mixture of butter, brown sugar, golden raisins and walnuts. Baked in an oven for about an hour at 350 degrees, the apples ballooned up and looked luscious when cooked.

They tasted even better than they looked – with a little cream in the bowl alongside the warm apple. I think I like these even better than when they’re baked in a pie!
