Serves: 5
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 mins.


5 red apples, baking apples (Rome or York)
1 cup apple cider
5 tablespoons maple syrup
ground cinnamon

Core apples. With a paring knife or potato peeler, remove a small spiral of apple peel on the top quarter of each apple, leaving some peel on the apple to form a spiral design. Place apples around the edges of a casserole dish and pour cider on and around apples.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon syrup on each applel dust lightly with cinnamon. Cover with casserole lid and microwave on high for 10 minutes, or until fork tender. Serve with a dollop of vanilla non-fat frozen yogurt, if desired.
