Just like a crustless apple pie, these stuffed baked apples are full of brown sugar, topped with nuts and served with delicious vanilla ice cream.
My kids may not love most Thanksgiving desserts, but they do love these Brown Sugar Stuffed Baked Apples. The best part is that they can help make them too! My older daughter loves scooping the centers of the apples out with a spoon, and my younger daughter loves filling the center with brown sugar. I love the way the nutty caramel flavor of the brown sugar just melts into the apples during baking. Everyone in the family can hardly wait for these apples to come out of the oven.
Brown Sugar Stuffed Baked Apples
You will need:
- Granny Smith Apples
- Butter (1 teaspoon per apple)
- Brown Sugar (2 Tablespoons per apple)
Scoop out the center of each apple, leaving the skin on. Make sure not to scoop all the way through the apple, just enough to get out the seeds.

Stuff each apple with two Tablespoons Golden Brown Sugar. This should be just about enough brown sugar to fill up the center of the apple with sugar. Top each apple with 1 teaspoon of butter directly on top of the cinnamon, so it will melt down into the apple when warmed up.

Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over the top of each the apples. I hit each apple with quite a bit of cinnamon, but if you aren’t a cinnamon fan you can just dust the apples.
Add about an inch of water to the bottom of a glass pan and stand the apples up in the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm topped with nuts. These are particularly delicious when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is kind of like an apple pie but without the crust!

Baked apples are so easy to make and so good to eat. Love all the brown sugar with the apples. Sometimes I even wrap them in stripes of pie dough and bake them like an apple pie.

These look amazing! This is my type of perfect fall recipe. Not too fattening, baked so it warms up the house and fall apples!
Amber Myers says
Oh yum, these look SO good. I must make these one day. I don’t think we’ve ever had baked apples before.
Oh my gosh this is so simple I can’t believe I haven’t tried it. I might just make these as my dessert for Thanksgiving.

I’ve never made baked apples but I’ve had them a few times. My mother in law makes them and she finishes each with a cinnamon stick and whipped cream.
Not sure why I’ve never tried this before. It looks so yummy! Looking forward to giving this recipe a try.

This sounds like a wonderful seasonal dessert. I haven’t tried stuffed baked apples before but it does sound really delicious.
I love baked apples. I found a recipe for slow cooker apples that I have been wanting to try. The flavors of apple and cinnamon are my favorite!
Sarah Bailey says
Oh my goodness these sound absolutely amazing! I love all the different things you can make with apples, it is such a versatile baking item.
I love a good baked apple. They’re such a great dessert for when the weather is getting cooler.
Brown sugar stuffed baked apples are one of my favorite desserts for fall. I like to add a small scoop of ice-cream or whipped cream to push it even more over the edge.
This is the 2nd time I’m seeing something like this. I think it’s a sign that I need to make it 🙂

I have never tried making something like this and for sure my hubby would be surprised if I will prepare this for him.
Gervin Khan says
Wow, this is so delicious and you give an idea of eating apples in a different way. Thank you for sharing this recipe I will definitely try to make this for me and also for my kids.
Stuffed apples are such a tasty easy fall dessert. Your recipe is so mouth watering! My family will love it!

I never had baked apples before. These looks like a great snack or dessert after lunch or dinner.
These sound delicious, and I bet my kids would love these. We pick so many apples in the fall and it is inevitable that they start to go bad or at least get soft. This would be a perfect way to use them up.
My mom would make this in the oven all the time in fall! It is seriously so good – I want to make some tonight!
