Baked Apples
Core baking apples (Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, and Greening) and pare 1 inch strip of skin from around middle of each apple or pare upper half of each to prevent splitting. Place apples upright in ungreased baking dish. Place 1 to 2 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar, 1 teaspoon margarine or butter and 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon in center of each apple. Pour water (1/4 inch deep) into baking dish. Bake uncovered in 375° oven until tender when pierced with fork, 30 to 40 minutes. (Time will vary with size and variety of apple.) Spoon syrup in dish over apples several times during baking. Variations: Baked Honey Apples: Substitute honey for the sugar. Red Hot Apples: Use Red Hot candies in center of apple instead of the sugar mixture. Fill center of apple to the top with Red Hots and bake as directed above.
