My kids love when I make baked apples and the smell fills the room. There are variations with this recipe, most people add brown sugar in with the cinnamon but I don’t because I think they don’t need it and the apples add enough sweetness. If you also don’t want to add sugar but want more sweetness add honey after its baked already. I have seen where people also add granola or oatmeal to it. I have never tried it like that but it may be worth a try.

Peel the apple 1/2? around the top.
sprinkle cinnamon generously over the apples
Place the apples in a shallow baking dish then dot each one with butter.

Cover with lid or foil and bake until apples are done. Usually about 40 minutes, check once in a while by putting a fork in it
