We had a dinner party one night, just us and a few other couples. My friend Paige ended up in charge of dessert and boy am I glad she was. She brought these delicious baked apples. These apples are so good, that my husband, who hates warm apples, even devoured them. They are pretty simple and totally worth making.
You will need:
6 to 8 medium baking apples
1 cup orange juice
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup honey
Preheat the oven to 350. Dig out the core of each apple, stopping about a half inch from the bottom. If you dig down too deep the apple will burst in the oven. Put the apples in a small baking dish, that way the apples won't fall over. Brush the apples with 1 tablespoon of the orange juice.
Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. When this is combined, stir in the melted butter. Fill the apples, adding extra on the top, because who doesn't want extra filling? Pour the rest of the orange juice around the apples.
Cover the apples with foil, bake for 30-50 minutes until apples are softened. Cool for a few minutes and drizzle with honey.
Eat until your stuffed, because who wouldn't want to with these in the house?
