Baked Apples On The Grill

I got this recipe from Alethia Liberty. Brittney posted it and it just looks so good. She has pictures. If you want to see them, click here. The last couple of years, we've had an "Apple Day" and I can't wait to try these this year for that. Brittney said you can also do these in the oven. So, if you don't have a grill, you can still enjoy this delightful fall snack.

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
Sprinkle of water
And a grill, of course (I used a Charbroil gas grill).Select apple. Fresh from the apple tree is the ultimate best, but that’s, unfortunately, not always available. Washington apples from the local IGA would work just fine.

Peel off the top and bottom of the apple to allow flavor to better seep in to the apple during the baking process

Lay out a sheet of tin foil, and place apple on it. Sprinkle the hollow with cinnamon.

Insert the sliver of butter into the center (may add extra for more syrup).

Pack brown sugar on top.

Add a dribble of water to moisten.

Wrap apple, carefully sealing tinfoil. This leaks easily, so 2 layers of foil are recommended. Place in heated (to 300-325F) grill. Let bake for 20-30 minutes.

Garnish with nuts and raisins, if desired.
