Baked Apples


Adapted from recipes shared by Christine Gaud of Saratoga Apple and ‘bakes apples’ on

Makes 4 servings

Prep and cook time: 1 hour, 20 minutes


  • 4 large baking apples*, such as Honeycrisp
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Wash and core apples, leaving enough of the core at the base of the apple to contain the filling.
  3. Combine the butter, cinnamon, and chopped nuts in a small bowl. Roll log shapes of the mixture and press enough into each apple to fill the core.
  4. Fill a 2-quart baking dish with about 3/4 cup water, or enough to cover the bottom. Place the apples upright in the dish. Bake until the apples are soft and the filling is browned, 1 hour.
