So I really wanted to make these on Saturday night after recipe stalking on Pinterest – but I needed to be searching for recipes for dinner, not dessert!
But suddenly, I stumbled upon the same baked apples as a side dish in a dinner recipe. One that didn’t involve pork.
I had a potato I could use for the starch and frozen green beans in the freezer to have for a side. I glanced at the ingredients.
Oooo, herbes de Provence, fancy. Wait…that was the name of the fru fru salad dressing I bought at Whole Foods last week! I could pour it all over the chicken and then grill it. That would go well with my cinnamon baked apples!
It was a damn good dinner.
Cinnamon Baked Apples
Original recipe from Fresh Tastes.
Makes 4 small servings
- 2 large apples
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp water
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Chop up the apples and mix with cinnamon, brown sugar, and water in a casserole dish or baking pan.
Bake apples for 30 minutes while stirring occasionally.
Serve with meat for dinner or for dessert with vanilla ice cream.
