Well, it's that time of year when people are wondering.....
what shall I do with
I thought today I would post a recipe of
something that I really enjoy.
BAKED APPLE PECAN
Sound yummy??? It is!!!!!!!!!!!!
The roasted flavor of
the pecans is
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!
