Simply Baked Apples

- these taste like apple pie filling. no joke.

Wash and core 4 nice big local apples.

Make an equatorial cut about 1/4 inch deep around each.

Put side by side in a casserole dish. I use a round one – collects and concentrates the juice better..

Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon, you could add walnuts or pine nuts if you wished.

bake at 350F for 20 min, rotate the dish, 10 min more, keep checking until the apples are pooped and exploding around their middles.

remove from oven and cool.

I have them straight up – the best way. Or with ice cream/fro-yo, or nuts n raisins, or with my yogurt in the morning.
