  • 3-4 large apples, peeled and cored, about 6 cups (I used Honeycrisp)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 4 Tablespoons cold butter, cubed


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a medium-sized baking dish and set aside.
  • Cut the apples into ½ inch chunks. In a small bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. Stir until all ingredients are well combined and apples are evenly coated.
  • Pour the apple mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spread the butter cubes over the top of the apples and cover the dish with foil.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and stir. Serve hot with ice cream and caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!
