With Autumn coming on, we are spending our evenings outside by the pond, and I am making some sweet and savory bits, to go with the wine.
This comes from a memory of a dessert I had in Boston, about 5 years ago, while on a lecture swing.
I do not have the “exact” recipe, but this is pretty close.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make dessert essentials: cinnamon baked apples
You will need an ovenproof pan with a lid or a glass baking dish to make this recipe
Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
Take the apple, cut off the top and bottom, and then cut in half.
Discard the top and bottom and core the apple slices.
I am using a small round pie cutter, but a small knife would do just as fine.
Place a rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
Dip the apple slices in the butter and place them into an ovenproof pan, or baking dish.
Mix the remaining ingredients together; including the butter, but not the sea salt, and stuff the apple slices.
Cover the pan and place into the preheated oven for 11 minutes.
If you are using a glass baking dish, cover with a piece of foil.
After 10 minutes, uncover, and bake until the apple is tender, about an additional 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with a bit of flaked sea salt, and a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
