Easy Baked Stuffed Apples
I am a bit apple obsessed. These are a treat for your taste buds! And Only 5 ingredients with a 15 minute prep😁
This recipe (though, hardly a recipe) has no extras, no added complexity; just simple ingredients coming together to bring about a warm hug of comfort. These are the baked apple slices from my childhood, the ones my mom used to make. The cinnamon and fruity smell of the apples that fills the air while baking in the oven is comfort in itself, but the sweet yet tart, tender apples are truly something special.
