Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp butter divided, some to coat the pan and the rest, drizzled on the apples before baking.
  • 4-5 medium apple Cored, peeled, and thinly sliced. You can use Gala apples, Honey Crisp apples, or a mix of one of the two previous ones and Granny Smith apples.
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F then coat the 9x13 baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples, with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, corn starch, and lemon juice until everything is well coated.
  • Transfer to the baking dish, cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil, mix the apples, stir the apples to cover them in the butter-sugar sauce, and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Check the doneness of the apples at 5 minutes and see if they're at the right texture for you.
  • Once you pull the apples out of the oven, stir them to coat them in the sauce again, and enjoy!
