  • 1Peel and hollow out the apples saving the peels in a saucepan with about 2 cups of water

  • 6Bake 350 degrees for about an hour until crust is light brown and flaky.
  • 7While apples are baking prepare the sauce:
    Boil peels until they are mushy, then discard peels
  • 8To the boiling water add 1 cup cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, 2 Tbsp butter, 1/2 bag of red hots. Simmer until candies are melted
