Baked Apples

I love the topping of apple crisp, so I used it as a filling for these baked apples. The recipe uses just one tablespoon (15 mL) of butter. Choose a firm apple, as you want it to soften but not turn mushy. I couldn’t find our melon baller so I used a small ice cream scoop to core the apples two thirds of the way through, and it worked perfectly, leaving a nice pocket for the filling. Try it with vanilla frozen yogurt. Yummy!
