Old-Fashioned Baked Apples

This ridiculously-simple recipe is a Swedish favorite from my grandmother.


4 red apples – peeled, cored and cut into eighths
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter (please do not use margarine – it will not turn out.)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 300°. Heat the butter over the stove top in a 2-quart cast-iron pot until melted. Mix in the brown sugar, apples and cinnamon.

Bake covered for 1 hour. Serve plain or with vanilla ice cream in small serving dishes.

Serves 4.
