The heavenly aroma of baked apples is matched only by the amazing sweet, caramellike flavor of the oh-so-easy treats.
Step 1: Core the apples
Step 2: Set apples in baking dish
Step 3: Spoon cooked fruit or another filling, if desired, into centers of apples. Pour liquid such as apple juice, orange juice, or fruit nectar around apples.
Step 4: Bake apples
Bake until apples are tender (about 40 minutes, at 350 degrees), basting occasionally with liquid from baking dish. Cool slightly. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
