Don’t worry about being too exact with proportions. I use cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg but you may like to add cardamom, cloves or ginger. Apples adjust well to nearly all spicing.

Core apples from stem side through the center to 1/2 inch from the bottom.

Score around the apple with a sharp knife and then place the apples in an ungreased baking dish.

 

FILLING:

Mix chilled Kerrygold Irish Butter, sugar, and spices together and fill the empty cored space of each apple with some.

Dot each apple on the top with one additional small piece of Kerrygold Irish Butter.

Add water or cider to the height of about 1/2 inch in pan.

 

BAKING:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Bake for about 45 minutes.

Take a sharp knife and if it can slide in easily, they’re done! If not, bake a bit longer.

 

SERVE:

Spoon the warm sauce in the bottom of the pan over the top of apples and a dollop of whipped cream.
