These apples make their own sauce, which is decadent over vanilla ice cream. So easy, so delicious.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup brandy
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Place apples in a shallow baking dish. Mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice and nutmeg; pack the mixture into the cores of the apples and pile the remaining on the tops. The tops of the apples should be covered. Place 1 tablespoon of butter on top of each apple. Pour the brandy into the dish, drizzling over the apples. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until apples can be sliced with a spoon. Serve in a bowl with some ice cream, and spoon sauce over. The sauce will be slightly runny.
