These apples are baked with a walnut streusel stuffing, sort of an inside-out apple crisp. Serve these apples warm, with cream or whipped cream.

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 large apples
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375°.

Core the apples without cutting all the way through. With a sharp knife or melon baller, enlarge the center cavity, cutting out any seeds and tough center and making room for stuffing.

Butter am 8-inch square or 2-quart baking dish and arrange apples in the dish.

Stuff apples evenly with the mixture then sprinkle remaining mixture over and around the apples.

Cover the baking dish loosely with foil.

Bake for about 50 to 600 minutes, or until the apples are tender.

Serves 4.
