Lately, I’ve spent some time brainstorming ways to prepare my fresh apples from the orchards. I wanted to try something simpler for this first go with the apples. We decided to take advantage of the nice weather and grilled a tasty ribeye steak we received through our meat CSA. It was a pretty large piece and definitely way more than enough for the 2 of us.

Although we were pretty full from the dinner, that did not deter me from making our baked apples dessert.


  • 4 apples
  • 2 tbsp smart butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Core each apple
  3. Stuff each apple with 1/2 tbsp of butter and then brown sugar.
  4. Place all apples in a baking dish with a little water on the bottom of the dish (you could even put some apple cider instead of water).
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon
  6. Bake for 30 minutes (we wanted the apples pretty soft)

The warm baked apples were perfect for eating in our sun room with the crisp air blowing through. Yup, it feels like fall 🙂
