This dish is one of our all-time favorite dishes. We love apples of all kinds and you really can’t go wrong with whichever type of apple you go with.

The ingredients in this dish are so accessible and so comforting.

Use good-quality cinnamon and vanilla extract.

We LOVE Neilsen-Massey extracts and flavorings, but you can certainly go with whatever you have on hand.

Ingredients for Baked Cinnamon Apples

We like this version because the apples don’t get mushy.

They are soft but still taste like apples.

With amazing cinnamon, vanilla, and butter sauce.   Just divine!
