We enjoyed these baked apples, but as usual I tweaked the recipe to suit our tastes. Rarely do I follow a recipe exactly. I cut the apples in half and cored. Put them in a dish. Followed the ingredients of the recipe, though I did carmalize the nuts first and adjusted the ingredient amounts to suit our tastes. Baked them covered for 30 minutes and uncovered for another 15 minutes. At first I thought I wasn't going to like them but after a couple of bites they really appealed to me and I will definitely make this recipe again. Since there are only two of us now I refrigerated the leftovers and reheated them later. They were still delicioius. Love recipes that I can use the leftovers. Cuts down on so much cooking every day.

I loved this!! Well I only used the ingredients. I didn't measure. I definitely used more cinnamon and maple syrup than was called for. It's a great dessert or snack! Read More

Delicious and great reheated for two or three days. I added about two tablespoons of honey to the mixture just for that typical honey-apple taste. Throwing the ingredients together at single-serving proportions and zapping the apple in the microwave for a couple of minutes makes a great midnight snack! Read More

Delicious and comforting on a cold evening. I used honey instead of maple syrup and I would definately recommend using Granny Smith apples or some other tart apple. Some pecans sprinkled on top are good. My husband loved it!! Read More
