Baked Honey-Nut Apples

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 apple)
Serve this mellow treat with a drizzle of heavy cream, topped with ice cream, or on its own with the natural juices poured on top.


  • 4 medium fresh tart apples, such as Macintosh or Cortland
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup apple cider or water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Use a small knife to remove the apple cores, cutting into the center of the apples, but leaving bottom intact to form a cavity. Peel the top half of the apples.

  2. In a small bowl, mix walnuts, honey, and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Use a small spoon to stuff apples with filling on top.

  3. Places stuffed apples in a medium-size, shallow roasting dish or baking pan (leaving enough room so the apples don't touch), and pour the cider or water over them.

  4. Mix sugar and remaining cinnamon; sprinkle over tops of apples. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, basting once or twice, or until apples are soft. (Warning: Apples will be very hot, let them stand for a few minutes to cool.) Serve warm.

  5. How kids can help: Mix walnuts, honey, and cinnamon; stuff apples; place apples in pan. Mix cinnamon and sugar, and sprinkle over apples.
