Baked Apples

I’ve been kind of slacking on the point counting lately since I’ve been on vacation. Vacations are fun, but it gets hard to track all that food. It’s nice to come home and make your own meals after that.Hope everyone enjoyed the pictures from my trip too. See the last 2 posts down from this one.

I’ve got a lot of pumpkin and apples to use up, so be on the look out for those types of recipes. I know a lot of people are gung ho about pumpkin right now since it’s Fall, but what about the apple? or squash even? Pumpkin seems to get all the glory in Fall.

I love apple crisp. The part I like most about it is the streusul topping. This recipe kind of reminds me of apple crisp, but with less work. You core out part of the inside of the apple, and just stuff them with the streusal topping. Bake in the oven and you’re done. Just make sure to bake the apples until they’re done. I thought mine were cooked long enough but they weren’t. Had to stick them in the oven for longer than 30 minutes. Also, the next time I’d make these I’d sprinkle the apples with some cinnamon and sugar. Hope you enjoy!
