Everyone is posting about what they did on Halloween, and I realized that I totally forgot to post what we did! It really isn’t anything that exciting. We stayed home!!!! Also, we relaxed which was huge for us. If you know Grant at all, he loves his chill time which I think comes with the territory when you are an introvert. So while Grant “Chills” I tend to either be productive, be crafty, clean like crazy, or read for hours on end. Â We didn’t hand out candy because there are only 3 kids living near us in our complex, and I think their families took them to better(as in more candy is available) neighborhoods. Â It has been colder here (nights in the low 30s to highs in the high 40s low 50s) which really got me in the mood for warmer food. Poor Grant has had to eat TONS of soups,etc. So, I was in the mood for baked apples. My parents used to make the randomly while growing up and this sounded perfect.
I started with a small amount of water to cover the bottom and then added in some cornstarch.
Mix it all up.
I added some Vanilla extract and mixed it up.
Added some pecans andÂ raisinsÂ since those are what I had on hand.
I used 2 apples cored and halved since I knew Grant wouldn’t be eating any. He isn’t a fan of most warm fruit items.(Ex. Pies, Cobblers, etc.)
Add the butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
Cover in foil for a part of the baking process so the tops don’t burn.
Then removed and let bake another 5-10 mins.
And Tada! Yummy baked apples.
I got the recipe here, and followed some of the suggestions that the commenters had.
