Baked Apples

Margarine or butter, 1 tsp. per apple
Cinnamon, 1/4 -1/2 tsp. per apple
Nuts, 1 Tbsp. per apple

Place apples in a baking dish and fill the center of each one with sugar, margarine, cinnamon and nuts. You can also add a small amount of water or apple cider to bottom of the pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 mins. until apples are tender.



Apple Dumplings

Set each apple in the center of a circle of pastry dough (pie crust).

Then fill with sugar, butter, cinnamon and nuts.Pull the dough up and around the apple. Seal well. Brush with egg white or milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes and then turn down to 375° for 20 more minutes.

Sauce (for 5 apples)

While apples are baking, mix 1 cup water, 2 Tbsp. butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat.

    I love these recipes. I love apple dumplings and see them selling in stores this time of year for $2.99 each! I made them using pie crusts and it’s so easy I could hardly believe it. So now I don’t have to pay $2.99 for one, which I think is outrageous. Also, the add-ins for the baked apples sound great and I will give them a try.

    These recipes are great ideas. I’ve also heard that you could prepare the apples ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator or freezer and then when the kids want a snack just bake. This would be a healthier alternative to all the potato chips and sugary snacks that most kids eat.

      Sorry Evelyn. It is the same as the dumplings. 375 degrees for about 20-30 mins or until the apples are tender. It depends on the size of apple you use for how long it takes to cook.

    Haven’t had these in 50 years! Had forgotten all about them. Mom used to make them instead of apple pies so my Dad could take one without sauce in his lunch box! Thanks for reminding me of them, I’ll pick up some apples and do some this next week.

    I’ve heard that for baked apples some people put honey at the bottom instead of brown sugar. Also I’ve heard that if you brush the apples with lemon juice they will not brown so you can freeze them and bake any time you want. The apple dumpling recipe also sounds delicious.
