Baked Apples

Every once in a while I like to throw out the usual equation for dinner and try something knew.  Skip the potatoes and green veggie side and see what we can do that would be a little different. 

Since pork was on the menu for Sunday dinner I thought some sort of apple side would be nice.  Growing up we would have baked apples for dinner every once in a while but those were typically the Stouffers baked apples that had been cooked no less than 4 times for more than an hour each time as they barely resembled apples anymore....but boy were they good!

Since these were always a favorite of my brother and mine as children I thought I would go on the hunt for a similar recipe that might be a little better for us than something from the frozen food section.  

I search and searched, asked google and allrecipes and hadn't found quite what I wanted...everything was just a little too fancy for what I wanted.  I wanted your basic baked apples with a few spices, a little sugar and some butter for good measure!

Finally I thought I would consult Facebook so I threw it out there and alas my dear friend, Rebecca, pulled through within minutes!!!  It was perfect....exactly what I wanted, just your delicious, basic baked apples!!!  Thanks're the BEST!!!

Even my brother said he liked them so much, and I quote, "We can have these again!"  Thanks brother!!
