Cinnamon Red Hots Baked Apples
baking apples, medium to large sized
cinnamon red hot candies
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter an 8x8 inch square pan.
2Do not peel apples as skin helps them hold their shape when baked. Remove and set aside tops of apples. Core the apples, leaving approximately 1/2 inch at the bottom. Arrange in the baking dish.
3In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon red hot candies and cinnamon. Fill each apple with the mixture. Replace apple tops. Sprinkle remaining mixture over the apples.
4Bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve hot or cold with pan sauces spooned over apples. Great with whipped cream.
