These baked apples are a refreshing twist on a classic dish. I like to make them when I’m expecting company because they make the entire house smell amazing.


  • 2 Fuji, Gala, or Granny Smith apples $1
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces $1 for a stick 
  • 2 tbsp sour cream $1.50
  • 1" piece ginger, peeled and minced $1
  • 1/8 cup sugar Pantry

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 
  2. Cut off the top of each apple, about 1" down. Set aside.
  3. Use a paring knife to scoop out the cores of the apples, creating a hole about 2" deep and 2" wide in each apple. Carefully cut about 1/8" off of the bottoms of the apples so that each apple has a flat base.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, sour cream, ginger and sugar. Divide evenly between the 2 apples and pack into the hollow centers. Replace the apple tops and bake for 30 minutes or until the apples have softened and the skin crinkles.
