These baked apples are surprisingly simple to make! You'll just need a few fresh, crisp, slightly tart apples, a touch of sugar, and a bit of cinnamon!

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar tightly packed
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4-5 large apples peeled, cored, and sliced about 1/3" - 1/2" thick (this is about 3 lbs -- I like to use Honeycrisp or Gala)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter cut into 6 pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and lightly grease a deep 9x9 pan with butter.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together your sugars, cinnamon, and cornstarch until well-combined.
  3. Add the apples and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with lemon juice and add walnuts (if using) and stir again until well-combined.

  4. Transfer apple mixture into your prepared baking pan (be sure to scrape out all sugar/juice from the bowl) and dot with butter pieces.
  5. Cover pan with foil and transfer to 375F oven. Bake for 60 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork, stopping every 15 minutes to stir apples.
  6. Serve warm, top with ice cream if desired.
