Baked Apples

Baked apples are especially delicious in the autumn time but make a good all year round dessert. We have used Grilling Rings to keep the apples upright whilst cooking, though you can stand the apples in a baking dish. You can't beat vanilla ice cream with these baked apples (we haven't been able to come up with a recipe for that one yet!!)

Step 1

Use the cutting board to clean and core apples to 1/2 inch (1 cm) from the base. You can use a corer or a paring knife
