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!
