Apple Pie Baked Apples

One word:  Yum!

This tasty dessert is basically homemade apple pie without the crust.  It is plenty sweet on its own, which is how we ate it, but would be excellent as a warm topping for vanilla ice cream.

The preperation of this recipe is super easy.  However, it does take longer to peel and slice apples when you have a little toddler girl & husband eating up all you've done. 

Apple Pie Baked Apples
(based on a recipe from Cowboy Flavor:
10" Dutch oven
14 coals on top 8 on bottom

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
4 1/2 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples
4 tablespoons cornstartch
1/3 cup apple juice

Melt the butter in the dutch oven over hot coals (break up the stick of butter before putting in the D.O. for faster melting).  Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, 3/4 cup juice, and vinegar.  Add apples and stir.  Cook about 20 minutes (or until apples are soft).  Cooking time will vary depending on how thick you slice your apples.  After 20 minutes, combine cornstartch and 1/3 cup apple juice and pour into the Dutch oven.  Stir and cook an additional 5 minutes.  Serve warm plain, with whipped cream, or over ice cream.
