Baked Apples

Do you know a good recipe for Baked Apples?

It’s Autumn here in New England…apple picking season, HOORAY! Does anyone have a good recipe for Baked Apples? Cinnamon, sugar, oats, that sort of thing? I need amounts. Thanks a lot!

This is one of my favorite baked apple recipes!! Except I use Brandy in mine and I add raisins, I also like using salted butter.

4 Golden Delicious apples with stems
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 (2- by 1/2-inch) strips fresh lemon zest
4 whole cloves

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Cut off top third of each apple and reserve. Scoop out seeds and some of flesh from apples using a melon-ball cutter or round teaspoon measure to form a cavity (do not puncture bottoms). Stand apples in a buttered baking dish just large enough to hold them.

Heat remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Pour some of syrup into cavity of each apple and remainder into baking dish. Return apple tops to apples and cover dish loosely with foil.

Bake in middle of oven until apples are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
