1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
6 Apples. (I used 3, 1lb honeycrisp apples this time)
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 teaspoon size pieces
1 cup apple juice
6 springs fresh mint(optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
Peel and core apples, making sure not to puncture the bottom of the apples so that the juices will remain. Fill each cavity with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter. Place apples in a casserole dish and pour apple juice around them. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh mint(if using), and serve.
