Hasselback Apples or Pears
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place apples, cut sides down, on a work surface. Arrange wooden skewers or chopsticks lengthwise on opposite sides of each apple half. Cut apple crosswise into 1/4-inch slices, stopping when knife reaches skewers or chopsticks to prevent slicing all the way through.
- Place apples in a shallow baking pan and drizzle with melted butter. Cover with foil. Roast 15 minutes; remove foil. Roast, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes more or until tender. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and serve warm.
