Baked Apples are really like Apple Pie without all the hassle and they absolutely taste amazing. They are the perfect EASY treat that you won’t be able to get enough of.

Loaded with brown sugar and cinnamon, this Baked Apples Recipe is what fall dreams are made of! What I really love about this recipe is how easy it is. 

You know me and how much I adore my easy recipes, well this one couldn’t get any easier, I promise you that! You will be making these over and over again.

Especially if you have an overabundance of apples like we usually do and want to switch up your normal routine in your apple dessert menu.

This has been a recipe that I’ve been making for years, one recipe pretty much since I’ve been a teen and learned how to “bake”. This is not technically baking, but that’s neither here nor there.

All I know is that it is absolutely delicious and I am not being biased here this time! If you are an apple lover but have never tried these before, then this is one recipe that I highly encourage you to make!

Some of my other favorite apple recipes that we have on our site include: Cinnamon Applesauce, Baked Honeycrisp Apple Chips and Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars.

HOW TO MAKE THIS BAKED APPLES RECIPE:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut apples in half lengthwise.
  3. Scoop out core and seeds, I used a melon baller.
  4. Place apples cut side up in a baking dish or cast iron skillet.
  5. Divide the butter between the apples then sprinkle each apple with 2 teaspoons of the brown sugar 1/8 teaspoon of the cinnamon then lightly sprinkle the tops with the pinch of salt.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes until apples are tender.
  7. Serve with caramel sauce, ice cream or whipped cream. 

WHAT KIND OF APPLES SHOULD I USE?

The best types of apples to bake with are apples with a firmer flesh. A classic baking apple is the Granny Smith like I used here.

Other great baking apples include Honeycrisp, Gala, and Golden Delicious. It is really up to you, but a more tart apple used when baking is great to balance out the sweetness of the recipe.

DO I HAVE TO PEEL MY APPLES?

No, you do not! The skin really becomes nice and tender and will slide right off if you don’t decide to eat it. You can peel the apples if you’d like, but it is not necessary.

When you leave and consume the peel of the apples there is actually a lot of nutrients in the peel so we always love leaving it on and eating it along with the inside of the apple.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Use a nice tart apple like Granny Smith like we do, some other apple choices I have stated above.
  • If you want a richer flavor you can swap out the light brown sugar for dark brown.
