The delectable smell of these baked apples welcomes in the fall season with open arms.  I must confess that I simply love any recipe with baked apples, and when I saw this one from Crystal I knew you would have the same desire to bake up a batch.

Harvest Baked Apples

Ingredients:

  • 4 granny smith apples, cored
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sugar in the raw
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Core the apples. Spray the bottom of your baking dish with nonstick spray. You will need a dish big enough to fit 4 apples.
  2. Mix flour, oats, salt, and spices in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Chop the almonds, and add to the dry mixture.
  4. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Probably best to use your hands to incorporate the butter. Usually this would be the last step when making a crumble, but I wanted to add the sugar last so that it would caramelize better.
  5. Add the sugar, honey, and vanilla. Mix well.
  6. Add the mixture evenly to the apples. I packed as much of it as I could into my apples, but I still had some left over.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes. 45 minutes is too long. If you overcook your apples, they will split and spill out into your baking dish. I topped mine with a sprinkle of brown sugar when they came out of the oven.
  8. Let cool and serve warm.
