Baked Apples Recipe

Lunn’s fancy baked apples with the crumbly stuff – a Rosh Hashannah favorite!

INGREDIENTS

  • CINNAMON APPLES
    • 3 medium firm, sweet apples
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • OAT TOPPING
    • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick)
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • FOR SERVING
    • Vanilla ice cream
    • Salted caramel sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  • PREPARE APPLES
    1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly butter a baking dish large enough to fit 6 apple halves.
    2. Halve the apples from stem to end and use a spoon to scoop out the core, seeds, and stem. Arrange the apple halves in the baking dish with the flesh facing up. Scatter 1-tablespoon of brown sugar and a 1/4-teaspoon of cinnamon over the apples.
  • MAKE TOPPING
    1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat then stir the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the melted butter (doing this directly in the saucepan reduces dishes).
    2. Divide the topping between the apples, lightly pressing it down onto the apples.
  • BAKE APPLES
    1. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 minutes. Uncover the apples then bake another 20 to 30 minutes until the apples are soft and the topping has browned.
  • TO FINISH
    1. Serve with a scoop of ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or plain.
