Sinfully Sweet Cinnamon Apples {Recipe}

Cinnamon apples are the perfect Fall treat. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 6 Fuji or Granny Smith apples
  • ¼ cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 6 cinnamon sticks

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Core apples to ½ inch of the bottom of the apples.  It helps if you have an apple corer.  If not, simply use a paring knife.  Cut out the stem area first, then the core.  Use a spoon to dig out the seeds.  Make the holes about ¾-inch wide.
  • Mix apple juice concentrate and vanilla.  Pour into cored center of each apple.
  • Place a cinnamon stick in the center of each apple.  Place apples on nonstick baking sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes.

Easy Cinnamon Apples Recipe

Ingredients:

*2 apples

*2 tablespoons of brown sugar

*1 teaspoon of cinnamon

*2 tablespoons of butter (not required)

How to make them:

1) Peel apples (optional- I did because my toddlers don’t eat the skin)

2) Core apples and arrange in a small casserole dish or bowl

3) Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a separate bowl and then sprinkle mixture on top of apples

4) Add butter (optional- I also cut mine into pieces so that the butter all wasn’t in one place)

5) Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and then microwave for another 45 seconds (microwave times vary… apples should be soft)

6) Stir again and enjoy

*** For additional yumminess, serve with caramel praline ice cream (or plain vanilla ice cream)***
