  • 6 small Granny Smith apples
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • Optional 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 cup vanilla custard sauce optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Peel each apple and place it in a bowl of water. Optional - add some lemon juice to the water to help prevent oxidation. Let them sit for 5 - 10 minutes or until all the apples are peeled and other ingredients are gathered.
  • Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Coat the apples completely with melted butter and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
  • Place the apples in a baking dish and cover it with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and baste the apples in the juices that have been released, and bake uncovered for 5 - 7 minutes until the apples start to brown and a cinnamon sugar glaze forms at the bottom of the pan. The apples should be soft and tender. Baste the apples immediately before serving and serve with vanilla sauce.


  • If you want more glaze at the bottom of your baking dish, add ¼ cup of apple juice to the baking dish in the beginning.
  • You can substitute apple slices as well but reduce the cooking time to 30 minutes.
  • Make ahead up to 2 days in advance and reheat the apples in the microwave or oven. Reheat the custard sauce gently on the stove top while stirring.
