Baked Apples

Pare and core cooking apples; put in a granite pan; put over them a cupful of sugar, butter the size of a walnut; cover; bake until almost done; take the cover off and let them brown. When apples are baked in a covered earthen dish or casserole flavor and appearance are at their best. Pare and core the apples, sprinkle them with sugar and a little powdered cloves and cinnamon. Add a little water, cover the dish, and bake a long time in a slow oven. The apples cook to a deep red, and are very tender and rich in flavor. Honey is a desirable addition to baked apples. Wipe or peel the apples, and remove the core without running the knife clear through. Into this hollow put a bit of butter and a teaspoonful of honey, and bake after the ordinary manner.

Fancy Baked Apples

Peel and core medium-sized tart apples. Put them in a baking dish and pour half a cup of water over them. Set in a hot oven, and when the apples are heated, sprinkle with enough sugar to coat each and bake until tender. Make a syrup of one cup of water, half a cup of sugar, the juice of half a lemon, and a teaspoonful of the grated rind. Add two tablespoonfuls of chopped raisins, two of chopped candied cherries, two of chopped candied pineapple, and two of chopped almonds, and when the sugar is dissolved set at the back of the stove and let cook slowly for half an hour. When the apples are done put in little glass saucers, taking care not to break them. Fill with the cooked sweets and pour the syrup over them. Serve cold with whipped cream.


Farmhouse Apples

Peel and core tart apples, fill the space from which the cores were taken with seeded raisins, bits of shredded citron, sugar and a little lemon peel; stand them in a baking pan, pour over them half a cup of water and dust with about two tablespoonfuls of granulated sugar. Bake in a slow oven until perfectly tender, then sprinkle bread crumbs over the top; dust again with sugar, and leave them in the oven for 10 minutes. While they are baking mix a table- spoonful of flour with a half cup sugar; pour over half a pint of boiling water, and boil a moment; take from the fire, and pour slowly over one well-beaten egg; add the juice of half a lemon. Pour over the apples and serve warm.
