During the fall we always had baked apples in my house growing up. My mom loved to make them and I sure loved to eat them. The smell of them baking while I sat in her kitchen chatting with her is one of those indelible childhood memories. I fully intend to continue the tradition in my own home, and I made good on those intentions this week. These classic baked apples were absolutely beautiful in their simplicity.
When they were done, I took the classic baked apples out and basted them with the juices in the pan. That deepened the flavor even more. Once they cooled enough to handle, I served them immediately with ice cream! Oh my goodness, it was like being in my mom’s kitchen again. The apples and filling were so perfect together with just the right texture. I hope you all love this childhood favorite as much as I do! xoxo
