Nothing says fall liked baked apples… is a great recipe that I guarantee will have your house smelling wonderful!

Honey-Spice Baked Apples

6 large Golden Delicious, Ida Red or Rome apples

¼ cup chopped walnuts

¼ cup packed light brown sugar

2 TBSP. butter, softened

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup dark rum

¼ cup honey

1 TBSP. lemon juice

1 TBSP. crystallized ginger, minced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove core from apples without cutting through to bottom, making a cavity about 1 inch wide. Using vegetable peeler, peel apples halfway down. In a small bowl, combine walnuts, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. Stir until blended. Stuff mixture into apple cavities. Spoon ½ tsp. rum over filling in each apple.

Place apples in a 20 inch pie plate. In a small bowl, combine remaining rum, honey, lemon juice, and ginger. Whisk until blended. Drizzle over and around apples.

Bake 45-55 minutes, or until apples are tender when pierced with a knife, basting with pan juices a few times. Let cool and serve warm or at room temperature.
