Easy Baked Apples

My Mom often made baked apples for dessert and since I just came across her recipe I'm making these as a Valentines day treat for hubby and myself. They make a quick, easy and healthy low carbohydrates, low calorie, low salt dessert but don't tell my husband!

Ingredients:
4 medium apples, unpeeled
2 teaspoons butter
½ teaspoon Watkins ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons brown sugar, packed
¼ cup whipped cream, optional

Directions: Wash and core apples, taking care not to cut through the bottom of the apple. Mix cinnamon and brown sugar. Stuff each apple with about 1 teaspoon of the mixture and top with one-half teaspoon of butter. Bake at 350 degrees F for thirty minutes. Cool and top each apple with 1 tablespoon of whipped cream if desired. (Serves 4)

I've had people ask me why the recipes I give them don't taste as good when they make them as when I do.  So, I'll tell you my secret, they won't taste the same if your don't use the same ingredients I do. If I use butter and you use margarine it's not going to taste the same as when I made it, and the same goes for Watkins spices, seasonings, extracts and other pantry essentials. I only use Watkins and you will taste the difference when you do too.

    Yum! These sound wonderful and remind me of a dessert we made as kids with sliced apples and candy red hots melted over them. I'm always looking for ways to use up all of these little apples on our mini orchard!

    This is a nice recipe but it would be improved if you stuff the apples with raisins or sultanas in addition to the sugar and spice! Of course, you must serve hot with fresh cream
