{Fall Recipe} Baked Vanilla Cinnamon Apples

Fall is soon approaching which means we will be baking more and cooking more comfort foods. I love the smells of Fall which almost always includes apples and cinnamon. I love a baked apple with a touch of vanilla and cinnamon as a dessert. To kick it up a notch I'm sharing a guest recipe for Baked Vanilla Cinnamon Apples. This Fall recipe will be a sure hit with the family and guest at any fall gathering. 



Vanilla Cinnamon Apples

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 baking apples
3 tbsp. butter
¾ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. allspice
1 tbsp. brandy
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup walnuts
Pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat the bottom of a shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each apple so it will stand upright. Scoop out the core of each apple from the top down with the small end of a melon ball cutter, making sure not to core all the way through the apple.
Combine the butter, brown sugar and vanilla paste in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat until the butter is melted, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the cinnamon, allspice, brandy, raisins, walnuts and salt. Fill the apples with equal amounts of the filling using a teaspoon. Place the apples in the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until caramelized and fork tender.
