Classic Baked Apples

Yesterday was a very rainy day, and the cool tropical breeze that Lee brought us made it oh so nice to open the windows. It was a wonderful fall day and the air smelled crisp and clean. I decided to give this recipe a try and it filled the house with such a great aroma of fall. This recipe was given to me by a lady I work with.

Classic Baked Apples!
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden rasins
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
6 small to medium cored baking apples. (Granny Smith, Jonagold, and Golden Delicious are some good choices.)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces.
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water
Ice Cream for serving on warm baked apples

Combine brown sugar, lemon peel, and raisins in small bowl.
Place apples in crock pot. Mine only held four. :( I need a bigger crock pot.
Place brown sugar mixture into cored apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and dot with butter.

Pour orange juice and water over apples. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or high for 3.

Serve warm with ice cream. I used Dolce Vita and it was so great! It really brought the new fall season in with a bang. This recipe was super easy and I would give it a one on the hardness level as it required very little skill.

 Give this super easy spin on a classic a try. Until next time, happy eating.
