Convection Oven

Ingredients

4
red apples, jonnagold, gala, pink lady are good. pick a hard firm red apple
4 Tbsp
butter
1/3 c
brown sugar
2 Tbsp
cinnamon
2 Tbsp
cinnamon sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 convection bake. Wash and cut the top and bottom of the apples. Use a paring knife and cut around the core in the center of the apple. Take your fingers and push the core out of the apple. If the core is too hard to remove, cut a little bit deeper around the core. For a swallow baking dish cut the apples in half around the middle of the apple. They should look like a barrel cut in half with 2 cut sides per apple. (I hope that’s not confusing. You want the hole in the apple facing up in the dish).
2
Place the apples in the dish, one cut side up and cut side down. Tip: for easy cleanup, use a disposable foil pan. You can buy 1/2 pans cheap at a big box club store.
3
Melt the butter (I melt the butter in the microwave for 30 sec.) While butter is hot mix in brown sugar. Once brown sugar is dissolved, pour mixture over the apples and completely coat each piece by rolling them around in the mixture.
4
Cover dish with foil and convection bake 400 for 30 minutes.
5
Remove foil and sprinkle the top of each piece with the cinnamon and cinnamon sugar. DO NOT TAKE A SHORTCUT AND USE JUST CINNAMON SUGAR. The pure cinnamon makes the dish.
6
Cook uncovered 400 convection bake for 15 minutes or until brown on top. Remove from oven and drizzle the juice in the pan over the apples. Put some ice cream on the hot apple and you have a quick and easy dessert.
