Baked Apples

Instead of a spoon, try a melon baller, which makes quick work of coring both apples and pears. Out of walnuts? Sunflower seeds, pecans, or even flaxseeds can be a substitute.

> 4 small Honeycrisp apples
> 4 tbsp butter, softened
> 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
> 1 tsp ground cinnamon
> 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
> 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
> 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 425°F. Trim the tops off the apples and use a spoon to scoop out the core and the seeds. Make sure to keep the bottom inch of the apple intact.
In a medium bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, spices, and walnuts. Using a spoon, fill the apples with the butter mixture. Set the apples upright in a baking dish and bake until tender and bubbly, about 20 min. Serve immediately.


Garnish with your favorite ice cream.
