Spiced Baked Apples

Rated as 4.42 out of 5 Stars

"I LOVE harvesttime and being able to cook with all the fresh produce gathered from gardens and groves. Since there's so much of everything, I try to be creative by enhancing old recipes with slight variations. That's what happened with these baked apples. The spices and touch of orange make the flavor just perfect! --Lorraine Chausse Cornwall, Ontario"

We love apples, but we were not happy about this recipe. One suggestion: If you want the apples soft, the bake time should be much longer for a hard apple.

As usual I tweaked this recipe a bit and we loved it so I've made it often. I took it to a recent potluck of 10 people. It was going to either be a side dish or dessert. I decided it would make ...

I followed the suggestions in the reviews for the most part, and these turned out really well! I put brown sugar and butter in the center of each apple, and made the water, flour (we didn't have...

Better than I was expecting! The orange zest is a genius addition! I coved the apples with foil, so I had no problems getting the apples to fully bake in 30 minutes. To make this dessert guilt...

I did not have nuts on hand so I left them out. I used Jazz apples. My apples were done at 45 minutes. This was very good, though quite sweet. I think next time I might try this with a little m...

Very tasty. I made a few minor changes. I used orange juice instead of some of the water and orange peel because it's what I had on hand. I also reduced the nutmeg. I used Cortland apples and ...

I was very excited to try this recipe and eventhough I followed some of the other reviewers' advice and baked the apples for an hour they were still not as soft as I was hoping for. That's the o...

I too enjoyed this recipe! My first time baking apples and they were wonderful. I also cooked my apples a little longer than recommended for softness. Great with whipped cream or ice cream.
