Baked Apples

Today is Johnny Appleseed's Birthday. Born in 1774, John Chapman was a great example of charity. He loved apples and would randomly plant apple seeds in the Indiana, Ohio and Illinois area. He would plant nurseries and return every couple of years to tend these nurseries.
So on behalf of Mr. Johnny Appleseed, I am providing a great and yummy baked apples recipe for you all to enjoy. Remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! These apples, soaked in butterscotch and sugar will keep the blues away too! :D

Baked Apples
5-6 small apples cored and sliced (I use fugi or gala) (note: try to keep slices similar in size so they cook evenly)
1/2 stick of butter
1 Tablespoon of Truvia (or 3 Tablespoons brown sugar)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon is ok too)
2 Tablespoons butterscotch schnapps (optional)

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients and cook on medium low heat for about 20-25 minutes or until the apples are brown and fork tender.
These beauties are best served as a side dish or as a dessert with vanilla ice cream on top. :D

Sounds so good. Our temperature dropped drastically today and I am now on the hunt for hot fall baking. I was trying with all my might to hold on to summer. Seems it's a fruitless dream. Lol!
