Cinnamon Baked Apples

Baked apples are the first sign that autumn has arrived. The oven warms the kitchen and the air is filled with the perfumes of apples and cinnamon. Makes you feel warm and cozy just thinking  of it. 


6 large Golden delicious apples
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/3 cup Suzanne's Specialties Maple Rice Nectar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
pinch sea salt
2 tablespoons avocado oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel the skin off the top quarter of each apple. Using a melon baller, scoop out the core and seeds, leaving the bottom of the apple intact. Stand apples in square baking dish. In a skillet, lightly pan toast the pecan pieces over medium heat. Add rice syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and oil. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture foams. Spoon nut mixture into the opening of each apple, filling completely. Pour 1 cup water into the pan. Bake until the apples pierce easily with a skewer, 35-45 minutes. 

Makes 6 servings.
