Baked Apples

Need a quick, healthy dessert?  Here's your answer!

Ingredients (per 1 serving):
1 apple
1/2-1 T butter
2 T. brown sugar


Hollow out the apple (I just used a knife to get out the core, then a spoon to make the hole a little bigger).  Peel a thin strip off the apple so that it can breathe in the oven.  In a small dish, mix together the butter and brown sugar, then put the mixture inside the apple. Place the apples in a baking dish and cover the base of the dish with water.  Sprinkle apple generously with cinnamon.

Bake at 350 degrees until desired softness, about 15-20 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, or just gobble up!
