Miller’s Baked Apples

As an employee of Miller’s, I get the privilege of eating our food often. I most definitely have a sweet tooth, but sometimes after a big meal, cake or pie is just too much. That’s when I head for the Baked Apples. Part of me likes to think I’m doing something “good” for myself by eating an apple for dessert. Another part of me laughs at my reasoning. Either way, they’re delicious, and hard to pass up. Top them with whipped cream or ice cream and they’re something you’ll find yourself craving long after you’ve left.

Ingredients: (makes 6 apples)

  • 6 Apples, whole, peeled and cored
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon & 1 cup sugar, mixed
  • 12 Tbsp melted butter (optional – The baked apples on our Smorgasbord do not have butter in them)

Directions:

Roll apples with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place apples into baking dish. Drizzle apples with the melted butter. Stuff apples with 2 Tbsp of filling (optional – see below) Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Optional filling:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup cranberries

Directions:

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon & water in heavy skillet and heat until almost boiling. Add pecans, almonds, raisins & cranberries. Cook for 6 minutes.

    I’ve had these baked apples as my dessert option, and have always thought they were divine. Dang, I’d love to try one with the filling to see if I like it before committing to make the filling, but I AM going to make these apples at home! Thanks, Miller’s, for sharing the recipe!

  3. Baked apples are like fresh applesauce but just a little bit better. 🙂
