Spiced Baked Apples
- 6 Empire or other New England apples
- 1/2 c sugar
- 2 T flour
- 1-1/2 t cinnamon
- 2 T margarine, melted
- 1/3 c walnuts, chopped
- Peel and partially core apples, leaving bottom end of apple cores in place. In pie plate or baking dish, combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Dip apples in melted margarine, then roll in sugar mixture. Place coated apples in shallow baking dish.
- Heat oven to 350°. Combine walnuts, remaining margarine, and remaining sugar mixture; spoon into centers of apples. Add enough water to just cover bottom of baking dish. Bake 45 minutes or until apples are tender.
- Microwave version: Coat and fill apples as directed above; place in microwave-safe baking dish. (Omit adding water to dish.) Loosely cover apples with waxed paper to prevent splattering. Microwave for 12 minutes or until apples are tender. Let apples stand 5 minutes before serving.
