Apples are one of my favorite naturally sweet snacks.
They are crisp, sweet, tart (especially the green ones) and totally delicious.
When you bake an apple everything about it changes.
It loses its crunch and tartness, but it increases the sweet and savoriness.
It also makes a pretty darn easy to bake dessert!
Choose apples that hold up well in heat; fuji, Granny Smith, Gala, Honeycrisp, and Jonagold.
Otherwise, you’ll end up with collapsed apples that kinda look like they exploded – which are still yummy, although not quite as pretty.
As the apple cooks it will release its juice (plus some of the cinnamon and honey from the stuffing) into the pan, you can use that as the sauce to drizzle on top when your apples are ready.
