Baked Cinnamon Apples * (Not IC Safe)

baked-cinnamon-apples

 

I saw this recipe in passing and had three spare apples on hand and just went for it.  It’s a great way to get that apple pie taste without all the fat and carbs of that double pie crust.  It’s extremely simple and the half recipe I made fit perfectly in my Le Creuset mini casserole dish.   We enjoyed this as a sweet side to our dinner, but we could also definitely see it as a topping for pure vanilla ice cream.  I used our apple staple – Galas!  From the PBS website. 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 lbs apples (either Cortland or Gala for best results), cored and chopped
  • 2 tsp cinnamon**
  • juice of 1 lemon**
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (I reduced the sugar as the apples release their sweetness as well).  

**Known IC irritants, tread carefully!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Toss the chopped apples with the cinnamon, lemon juice, and brown sugar and place in a baking or casserole dish.
  3. Cook apples, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes until soft and juicy. Serve for dessert with ice cream or with roast meat for dinner.
