8 medium tart apples
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp. packed brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. butter
2 1/2 mashed cooked butternut squash
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg, divided (or less)


Core the apples, leaving the bottom one inch intact.

Peel the top third of each apple, and remove the apple pulp, leaving a 1/2 inch shell.

Chop the removed apple and set aside.

Place the cored apples in an ungreased 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish.

Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, the orange juice and water, and pour mixture over the apples.

Bake, uncovered at 325° F for 1 hour or until apples are tender, basting occasionally with the juice.

In a large pan, saute the chopped apple in butter until apples are tender.

Add the mashed squash, and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat, cover and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring often.

Stir in the salt, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and remaining 1 tbsp. of brown sugar.

Spoon mixture into the cored, baked apple centers, and sprinkle with the remaining nutmeg.

Bake in the oven at 325° F for 30 - 35 minutes longer or until heated through, basting occasionally.

Drizzle with pan juices just before serving.

Serves 8.

ENJOY this baked apple treat!
