A few weekends ago, my roommate and I went apple picking ($5 a bag...what a bargain!). We have wayyyy too many apples to know what to do with so we've both been baking like crazy. My favorite snack lately has been Baked Apples, which is super easy and makes the apartment smell absolutely amazing. I like to bake it in a toaster oven, since it's faster and uses less electricity (woo bills!..):
pumpkin pie spice
few dabs of butter
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 F.
Slice the apple(s) in half and cut out the core, leaving the rest of the apple intact. Cut slits in the flesh of the apple so that all of the spices and butter can melt into the apple. Sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar, pumpkin spice, then nutmeg. Cut the butter into small pieces and dot it onto the apple halves. Bake for 30 minutes or until the apples are soft and bubbling.
I also made a pie the other day, I'm not actually sure if there's any left but it was very good. I usually use this Brown Butter Creamy Apple Pie recipe, but I wanted to try something different this time, so I found this Caramel Apple Pie recipe instead. It's definitely worth a try if you're looking for an apple pie recipe!
