Baking a whole apple pie just for your roommate and yourself is not practical. This apple dessert works great as a single serving and gives you the ability to play with different flavors.
I got the idea for making individual baked apples because I like miniaturizing desserts, like with cupcakes. All you need for this recipe is an apple, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Do not let the fact that you are baking for a small number of people deter you. Just use your creativity.
Total Time: 40 minutesYield: 1 servingIngredients:1 apple1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar
Heat oven to 375 F.
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut off the top of the apple. Use a spoon to remove the core. Continue to scoop out the apple and create a hollow space in the middle.
Once you have hollowed out the apple, separate the pieces that can be eaten from the core.
Chop the usable pieces and put them in a small bowl. Add cinnamon and brown sugar, then mix together.
Transfer the apple coated in cinnamon and brown sugar into the hollowed apple.
Put the filled apple on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Cover the apple lightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
