I’ve tried this recipe before and it’s delicious. It actually tastes a lot like my mom’s apple cobbler, just in a different form.


6 medium apples (I used Fuji because they were available)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
6 oz. chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in a  small saucepan over low heat, or in a deep bowl or cup in the microwave.  Add sugar and cinnamon to a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine.  Add honey and melted butter, whisk until smooth.  Stir in walnut pieces sit a long spoon.  Set aside.

Core apples and cut a shallow slit around the center of each apple, just through the skin, approximately 1/8 of an inch deep.  Fill each apple with 1 to 2 tsp of the filling mixture. Arrange in a high-sided baking dish just large enough to hold the apples. (I used an 8-inch square baking dish for these, but a pie tin would have worked as well.)  Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until apples are tender.  If filling begins to blacken, cover the apples with foil and continue cooking.

When done, set on serving plate and serve immediately with a little honey or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

*update: I’ve had several comments about the slit around the center of the apple.  it is not cut in half, but rather a small slice through the skin to prevent the apple from bursting.
