The Black Horse
5 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples
1 Cup of brown sugar
1/2 Cup of butter or margarine
1 Tablespoons of cinnamon
1/2 Cup of chopped pecans
1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
recipe is a great first course to a full gourmet breakfast.
We call it desert before breakfast! Core the apples almost
to the bottom, removing all the seeds and stem. In a pan,
melt the butter or margarine and stir in the brown sugar
and cinnamon mixture. Add the pecans and vanilla and mix.
Firmly pack the center of each apple with the spiced mixture.
Bake for 40-50 minutes until apple is firm, but can be pierced
with a fork. (Note: Granny Smith apples generally take longer
than Delicious apples). Dollop with homemade whipped cream
