Baked Cinnamon Apples

What does a pregnant mom do when she has 8 apples sitting in the fridge going back? Makes cinnamon apples - duh!
Somehow with miscommunication, we overbought apples. We usually prefer Granny Smith apples anyway. These are regular, red delicious apples. So, I had a few extra I knew would only last another day or two. I started thinking about the cinnamon apples I eat at Smokey Bones.... sigh.... But we were just there, its 30 miles away, and costs like $50 for our date nights there and I just wasn't into spending more money right now. So... Why not make it myself?

Baked Cinnamon Apples:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp butter, melted
6-8 apples, peeled, cored, and diced

Preheat your oven at 350 degrees. Peel, core, slice and dice those apples! I usually slice the slices in half. Make sense?! Hope so!
Mix the sugars and cinnamon into a bowl. You'll need a baking dish. Brush it with some of the melted butter. Then toss the apples in the cinnamon/sugars mixture. Pour the remaining butter over top then pop it in the oven for 30 minutes. Its definitely best served warm and we add another sprinkle of powdered sugar before eating.

So delicious and yummy! It makes enough for 2 nights of desserts.

Break down of costs?
6-8 apples (roughly a bag) - $3
sugars, cinnamon, butter - we buy all in bulk so I will say no more than - $1

so total of $4 tops, if all ingredients are already on hand, thats $2 per night for us for a yummy treat - fairly cheap and yummy and way cheaper than going to Smokey bones and getting an order for all of us!

(I wrote this recipe down a long time, I am sure I found it from a website, but who knows which one it was, hence no credit link!)
