Have you ever had a simple baked apple for dessert? If not, you are missing a real treat. Make one of these for each person, and for an especially magical presentation, serve them warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. :)
1 raw apple
1 teaspoon butter
1 Tablespoon real Maple syrup
a small pinch of ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Carefully wash your apple.
From the top of the apple, carefully cut out the core, making sure you don't cut all the way through to the bottom. Be sure to remove all of the seeds and crunchy core bits.
Place the apple in a ramekin, and to the hole, add the butter, syrup and cinnamon.
Put the ramekin in another oven-proof dish and bake for 45 minutes or until when you insert a small sharp knife into the apple, it is tender.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
