Remember when I had an overabundance of apples? Well I still have some. Not that I'm complaining or anything. It just gives me more chances to eat really good apples. These baked apples get so soft and juicy. Combine that with the sweet and gooey filling and you have pure happiness.
I've eaten this as a meal before and I recommend you do the same because why not!?
