Baked Whole Apples

Baked Whole Apples

4 baking apples

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup apple juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Core the apples, but don't cut all the way through. Leave the bottom of the apple intact. Trim away some of the peeling from the top of the apple. Place the apples upright in a small baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts. Carefully spoon mixture into center of apples. Drizzle the melted butter over the brown sugar mixture, dividing the butter among the apples. Pour apple juice in baking dish around the apples. Bake for 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve with ice cream or caramel sauce, if desired.
