How to Make Cinnamon Glazed Apple Dessert


  1. Peel and core apples. Set aside.
    In a saucepan combine remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and stir until candies are dissolved; add the apples slowly, one at a time.
    Cook them gently until they are tender. Test with a fork.
    Remove from the syrup, Fill the hollows with blanched almonds or other nut meats, and raisins are optional.
    Boil the syrup until it falls heavily from a spoon. Pour over the apples. Chill.
    My version:
    Glazed Apples
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup water
    2 Tablespoons cinnamon candies
    3 oz. package strawberry jellO
    10 of your favorite apples, peel and slice
    Combine and bring ingredients, except apples, to a boil. Stir until cinnamon and jello are dissolved.
    Peel the apples, core, and cut into wedges.
    Butter or spray a 9x13-inch baking dish- place apple slices or wedges in dish. Pour hot mixture over apples, bake in 350^ oven until apples are fork tender, about 35 minutes.
    This can be served warm or cold for dessert. I like to sprinkle chopped walnuts and golden raisins over top with a nice scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
    This mixture works good as a dump cake too. Sprinkle dry white or yellow cake mix over apple mixture in pan then pour 1/4 cup of melted butter over top. and bake as directed above. This is real good like this. I have even made it with pineapple cake mix and nuts and butter on top.
