These beautiful stoneware apple bakers produce delicious baked apples in a microwave or conventional oven in their own serving dish. First you core an apple and set the apple over the stem of the apple baker. Fill the cored out area with brown sugar, top with a pat of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. I like my apples done best in a conventional oven. Place them around your main dish that is ready to bake and it provides an easy, delicious dessert. More recipes are provided with your purchase.
