Baked Apples

Instructions

Begin by peeling the apples. Trim the top and bottom of each apple to create a level surface. Remove the core of the apple with a melon ball scoop.

Next cover tops of apples with the pecan oat mixture. Each apple gets about 2 tablespoons of topping. Roll enough mixture for one apple into a ball with your hands, slightly flatten and place on top apple. Avoid stuffing apple with filling.

To bake apples: Place apples in baking dish. Pour in hot water to cover bottom of pan ½ inch deep. Cover the dish with aluminum foil. Poke a few small holes in the top of the foil to allow some steam to escape. Place in oven and bake at 350F degrees for about 45 minutes. Apples are done when they give to gentle pressure when squeezed. Apple should not be mushy or too hard for a fork to easily go through. Cooking time will vary depending on apples and how often they are taken out of oven to be checked for doneness.
