Baked Spiced Apples

Oh yeah! It's getting to feel A LOT like Fall! (Sorta)

I love love LOVE this weather...well when it gets chilly at night until right before sunrise. Then we get into the 80's until nightfall again. But I'll take it!

This is the time of year I love to bake! The house smells awesome and winter's just around the corner!

And, if you follow this blog, you know the drill.  Hardly a recipe when I cook, and this is no different. This is a 99 Cent Only Store blog as well because everything came from the 99 Cent Only Store!

Baked Apples

Brown Sugar (.99 cents - used half)
Butter (.99 cents for 4 sticks - used one stick)
Cinnamon (.99 cents - used a few shakes)
Raisins (.99 cents - used half the box)
Pumpkin Spice (already had)
Apples (2/.99 cents - used 4)

Slice the top off your apples

Core the inside of your apples

In a saucepan melt the rest of your ingredients together. I used a stick of butter (that's right...a STICK), about a cup or so of brown sugar, couple shakes of the spices and a handful of raisins.

Melt and mix.

Then spoon into your apples and put back in the sauce pan.

Put the tops on and Bake at 375  for about 30 minutes covered, until soft-ish.

I usually use red apples, but the 99 Cent Only Store had only green.  Since green apples are tart, it was the perfect compliment to all the sweetness. So I shall use green from now on!

So...all in all...99 Cent Only Store stuff...this dish was literally under $5.00
