What do to with your extra apples.......and 100th post!

Well, it's that time of year when people are wondering.....
what shall I do with
these apples?
I thought today I would post a recipe of
something that I really enjoy.


Sound yummy??? It is!!!!!!!!!!!!
The roasted flavor of
the pecans is
absolutely delish!!!

4 large good baking apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to
1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples.
Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes
about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon,
craisins, and pecans.Place apples in a baking pan. Stuff each apple
with this mixture. Top with a dot of butter
(1/4 of the Tbsp).

Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes,
until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and

baste the apples several times with the pan jucies.

Meanwhile, I also like to roast a few pecans

in a baking dish. After they have roasted for

about 45 mins. I take them out and add

cinnamon, brown sugar and craisins. I then

place this mixture around the apple on

a plate when I serve it!!!

Now some people must serve warm with vanilla ice cream on

the side and I will admit it's very good that way...but I also love

it on it's own. Try it both ways...... either way I think you will love it!!

Well, today is my 100th post!! I can't believe I have

made it this long!! I am gettting together a little

something for a giveaway...BUT I don't have

it quite ready at the time. I guess you will have to

check back again in the next few days.

I hope you all have an amazing fall weekend!

Thanks for all your comments.....

I appreciate each and every one!

Congratulations! I alway enjoy visiting your blog and writing down all of your yummy recipes :) The apple dessert looks so yummy! I will have to try this---since my 3 year old is using my apples as basketballs and throwing them in the lamp shade....good grief. lol

Beth E. said...

This looks yummy! I looooove pecans...unfortunately, our youngest has a severe allergy to tree nuts. I don't cook with them much, even when baking goodies for other people, because I'm concerned about cross-contamination in my kitchen. I'm wondering if some sort of crunchy granola-type topping would work instead of the nuts? He can eat peanuts (they are legumes, of course) but I'm not sure they would be a good substitution for pecans in this case.
