Baked Cinnamon Apple
Core baking apples and pare 1-inch strip of skin from around middle of each apple or pare upper half of each to prevent splitting. Place apples upright in ungreased baking dish.
Place 1 to 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tsp butter or margarine, and 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon in center of each apple.
Pour water (1/4-inch deep) into baking dish.
Bake uncovered in 375 oven until tender when pierced with fork, about 30 to 40 minutes (time will vary with size and variety of apple).
Spoon syrup in dish over apple several times during baking, if desired.
