Have you ever been apple picking? I always wanted to go and had this vision from the movie Baby Boom of it being something so sweet and fall-like. Yeah, that didn’t happen for me. I went last year but all the good apples were gone. The only ones left were on the ground and had bites in them. Not good. So I’ve left my apple picking to the store. But I know that movie apple picking does exist because I’ve seen pictures all over Instagram.
This here dish is perfect for after dinner with your sweetie or just for yourself. It’s quick to bake up and the cinnamon, maple syrup and pecans combination is perfection and fall-licious. If you’ve never had baked apples, you have got to make this. It will become a regular in your house.
Ok, now I’m off to go watch Baby Boom.
