  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 6 apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp butter melted


  • Fill a large bowl halfway with water and add the lemon juice. Add the apples to the lemon water as they are sliced.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a square baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter. Mix well.
  • Remove the apples from the water and pat dry. Place the apples in a single layer inside the prepared baking dish. Top with the sugar mixture and spread as evenly as possible.
  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Serve immediately, either with vanilla ice cream or as a solo dessert.


  • Use a paring knife to core apples and peel them or I have found that I love using my apple corer for a quick turn around.
  • Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to your apples, it's a great addition! If you want to know how to make your own, check out my post on this.
  • Feel free to add some cloves or ground ginger to your apples for a little more complex taste. Just a little goes a long way.
  • Drizzle homemade salted caramel sauce over the apples for an additional flavor!
  • Use this as a quick and easy pie filling, too! If you are excited to make apple empanadas, or mini pies, this is a great filling instead of popping open a can.
