Baked Apples with Maple-Walnut Sauce


Preheat oven to 400F.


4 large apples, such as Gala
2 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
2 tbsp. light or dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup maple syrup
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts


Brush cut sides of apples with 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Arrange apples, cut sides up, in a baking dish. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl (you might need more than the recipe calls for depending on the size of your apples); sprinkle cut sides of apples with sugar mixture. Pour maple syrup in bottom of dish.

Cover with foil and bake 10 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more (mine actually took 32 minutes, my apples were quite big) or until apples are tender. Transfer apples to a serving platter.

Pour pan juices into small saucepan and stir in remaining teaspoon 1 teaspoon lemon juice and salt; bring to a boil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce is thickened, stirring constantly.
