Baked Cinnamon Apples

It's Friday!! While I'm a bit sad to see the apple recipes go, I'm super excited to see the weekend arrive! This week of apple-inspired dishes has been a lot of fun for me to experiment with. Husband and I have so much fun concocting recipes together. It's the best, being in the kitchen, candles lit, spices, sugars, and flours atop the counters, and aromas from our baking/cooking foods filling the entire house.

I'm looking forward to sharing our Feel Good Fall recipes next week! They're good ones too! For now, some simple baked cinnamon apples, which are a perfect pair to some toast for breakfast, as a side for lunch and/or dinner, or just a snacky treat. With minimal prep work, and simple ingredients this is an easy addition to any meal.

  • What You'll Need
    • 8 Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
    • 1/4 TSP cinnamon
    • Dash of all spice
    • Dash of cloves

  • What You'll Do
    • Peel and slice the apples. 
    • Pour water in a saucepan and add the apples, sugar, and spices.
    • Cover the saucepan with a lid and cook for 30-40 minutes on low-to-medium heat (we put ours on '3').

**tip: if you want to make these for breakfast, you can do the prep work the night before. Go ahead and peel and slice the apples. Store them in an air-tight tupperware and before closing the lid, add several splashes of lemon juice to keep the apples from turning brown. Close the tupperware lid and shake so the lemon juice evenly coats the apples. The next morning you can throw them in the saucepan with the sugar and spices while you are getting ready for the day.
