Paula's Baked Apples A La StowmarKate

This is a baked apple recipe that turned into more of a poached apple recipe- I had some leftover apples that we weren't going to eat, so Iooked for a recipe on Food Network and found one that Paula Deen makes. As is expected with a Paula Deen recipe, there's a LOT of butter and sugar involved. I basically substituted for the things I was missing and out they came. John doesn't like baked apples but he loved these.

Have fun!!

You will need:
Apples (duh) many as you have/want to use up
Butter (one small pat for each apple)
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Apple Juice (or water...I didn't have any AJ)
A roasting pan

Preheat the oven to 325°F-ish while you're coring the apples. Put the apples in the roasting tin. Mix the sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon (this is enough for about 6 apples), and fill the center of each apple. Put any extra into the tin. Put a pat of butter on top of each apple. Pour about ¾ inch of apple juice (or water) into the pan.

Cover with aluminum foil and cook in the oven for about 45 minutes.

Result: melty appley goodness that even John will eat.
