Cinnamon-Roasted Apples with Pecans and Ice Cream

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 30 mins
  • servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 Gala or Fuji apples
  • 4 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread pecans in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish; toast until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove pecans, and set aside (or store in a resealable plastic bag, up to 1 day).

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine sugar, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup water. One at a time (to prevent them from turning brown), halve apples through the stem end, core, using a melon baller, and immediately toss with sugar mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Arrange apples, cut side down, in baking dish; pour sugar mixture over. Tuck in cinnamon sticks; cover dish with foil. Bake until apples are easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Serve apples with ice cream, topped with pan juices and pecans. Garnish with cinnamon sticks, if desired.
