Hasselback apples

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Peel the apples, then cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the core, taking care to keep the apple intact.
  3. Place each half cut-side down and carefully slice very thin slices, taking care not to slice all the way through.
  4. Repeat on all the apples.
  5. Place all of the apples in a baking dish and drizzle with butter.
  6. With clean hands, rub the butter all over the apples.
  7. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon.
