Maple Walnut Baked Apples

4 servings
  • 4 large cooking apples, such as Mutsu, Greening, or Rome Beauty
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Wash and core the apples, leaving the bottoms intact. In a bowl, combine the walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup. Stuff the hollowedout center of each apple with the nut mixture.

  • Place the apples upright and close together in the pan. Combine the apple juice with the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and pour around the apples. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake for about 45 minutes, until the apples are tender.

  • Serve hot or cold with vanilla frozen yogurt or whipped cream
