  • 6 medium baking apples honeycrisp, gala, golden delicious, jonagold or granny smith
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 6 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 cup hot water
  • vanilla ice cream for topping


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and mix well.
  • Remove cores from the apples using a paring knife or corer, starting at the stem. Leave 1/2 inch intact at the base of each apple. Place the apples in the prepared pan in a single layer.
  • Divide the filling evenly between the apples. Top each stuffed apple with 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle any extra sugar mixture over the tops.
  • Pour the water into the bottom of the baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until apples are tender but not mushy.
  • Place apples in individual bowls for serving. Spoon liquids from the dish over the tops, along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!


  • If you love nuts and the crunch they add, add a 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts the mixture.
  • This treat is 100% gluten free, making it the perfect dessert for loved ones who are refraining from consuming wheat.
  • Consider adding 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the brown sugar mixture for added flavor.
  • Spoon liquids from the dish over the tops because it has a little caramely flavor that comes from the juices and spices baking together.
  • If you are worried about the insides of the apples turning brown as you are coring the rest, squirt just a tiny bit of lemon juice into them to keep the flesh fresh and white.
  • It's never wrong to make your own Salted Caramel Sauce to drizzle over your apples.
