Sweet Potato-Stuffed Apples

Yield 5 servings


  • 5 medium-size cooking apples
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds, divided
  • 2 cups cooked mashed sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Core apples, starting at stem end, without cutting through opposite end. Scoop out pulp to enlarge opening to 2 inches. Chop pulp, and set aside.

  2. Place each apple shell on a 7-inch square of aluminum foil.

  3. Stir together chopped apple, 2 tablespoons almonds, and next 6 ingredients. Spoon evenly into apple shells; top with remaining almonds. Pull foil up around sides of apples, and place in a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.

  4. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until tender.
