How To make baked apples?

step two: Preheat the Oven and Coat the Baking Dish

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly coat a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Carefully core the apples, leaving about ½ to ¾ inch of the sides intact. Arrange the cored apples in the prepared baking dish.

Bake the stuffed apples in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to crisp up the filling.

step six: Final Touches and Serve

Once the apples are tender and the filling is golden brown, remove them from the oven. Top each apple with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and generously drizzle with honey sauce before serving. Enjoy your delicious homemade baked apples!

Baked Apple Variations
