Baked Apples

Baked apples have always been one of my favorite sweet fall treats. Over the years I have tweaked my own personal recipe. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees while you prep.

What you will need:
-6 apples ( I used granny smith)
-1/4  cup sugar
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
-1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
-1/2 stick of unsalted butter
-1 small bottle of cream soda ( you can use apple juice if you would like )
-Carmel drizzle ( optional )

I started by cleaning the apples and cut the bottom and the top off. With a Mellon ball scoop, I then scooped out the center of the apple on top, this will serve a perfect place for the ingredients to fall. Then I mixed the sugar and spices in a small bowl, then evenly sprinkled over all 6 apples. Next, place a slab of butter on the top of each apple. I then poured in the cream soda on the bottom of the pan, try to avoid pouring on the apples. Carmel drizzle is optional but I love to indulge in the flavors and of course who minds a little extra sugar. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, depending on the size of  the apples you choose the time will be more or less.
