Place on a greased baking sheet. Top each apple with 1 TBS of cubed butter and 1/4 of each cinnamon and sugar. Cover and bake for 20-30 minutes until soft. Serve topped with granola and vanilla ice cream!

This recipe is simple enough for the most challenged of bakers yet is satisfying enough for the pickiest of audiences. It’s also fun to try with all sorts of fruits (and we even like to “hasselback” our veggies:) ) From our family to yours, happy holiday dining planning!

Eat Well,
