Golden Spiced Baked Apples

Golden Spiced Baked Apples

Warm baked apples -- coated in a spicy sugar mixture and filled with chopped nuts -- make a delightful dessert or extra-special breakfast.

Makes 6 servings


1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
6 Golden Delicious apples
2 tablespoons melted margarine
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
light cream or half-and-half (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 350º F. In pie plate or shallow dish, combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon, mixing well. Peel and partially core apples, leaving bottom end of apple cores in place.
  2. Dip apples in melted margarine, then roll in sugar mixture. Place coated apples in shallow baking dish. Combine walnuts, remaining margarine, and remaining sugar mixture; spoon into centers of apples. Add water to just cover bottom of baking dish. Bake 45 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with light cream, if desired.
