So lets just say (hypothetically), that you bought a ton of fresh apples from your local farmer because you were so excited about baking a pie and guess what...you were too lazy to make it (I don't know anyone who would do that). Here is an extremely fast and easy method of enjoying the fruit without the labor.
as many apples as you want
some unrefined dark sugar
maybe some raisins, nuts, orange peel or dried cranberries
definitely some cinnamon
1 TBSP water
Core the apple (don't cut completely through the bottom or the juices will spill out), add the ingredients, and bake in the oven for 10-20 minutes (It depends on what type of apple you are using). Let stand for at least 5 minutes and maybe even 10, these suckers are hot, and retain heat very well.
Serve them with some gelato if you feel like it, and forget about cleaning up pie crust mess ( :
Psst, don't tell anyone I told you this. But it is possible to nuke the apples as well. But you ain't heard if from me oww kayyy wink, wink...keep it in the family if you know what I mean.
