Cider Maple Baked Apples
Delicious baked apples! Serve hot or some like these refrigerated first and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. This makes a great fruit dessert.
6 large apples
1 tablespoon cinnamon imperials
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2-1/2 cups apple cider
Remove cores of 6 good sized apples with an apple corer. (A potato peeler works well also.) Cut out V-shape at top of apple.
Insert into the V-shape opening: 1 tablespoon of cinnamon imperials (the little red hot candies) and 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
Place the apples in a 8 x 8-inch baking pan and pour 2-1/2 cups of apple cider around them. Bake at 350-degrees, basting occasionally with the hot cider until apples are tender, but not mushy.
Grate nutmeg on apples. Remove apples from cider and place on serving dish.
