Here is another great apple recipe for your recipe file for fall desserts. They were really great warm out of the oven and great for a cool fall day.
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup maple syrup
Wash your apples well. Hollow the center of the apples out. I used a melonballer. Brush lemon juice on the inside of the apples to keep them from turning brown. I cut a little off the bottom of the apple so it will sit straight.
Combine flour, butter, sugar, oats, maple syrup, your favorite nuts, and cinnamon. I used black walnuts because that is what I had in the freezer. You may also add raisins if you like. Use a fork to combine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spoon the mixture generously into each apple.
Place about 1/4 inch of water into the bottom of the baking dish or you can use a muffin tin pan to hold the apples. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the crumble on top of the apples is golden brown, and the apples are soft.
Since it is just me, I only baked one apple and cut the stuffing recipe down accordingly.
You may serve the apples with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it an even decadent dessert.
The smell will make you think fall. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
