  • Drizzle maple syrup over apples; top each with 1/2 tablespoon butter. Bake, brushing occasionally with accumulated juices, until apples are tender, 45 to 60 minutes.

  • Transfer apples to a plate. Pour liquid from dish into a bowl; whisk in sour cream. Drizzle over apples; sprinkle with gingersnaps.

Cook's Notes

Rome Beauties are bright red and medium-large, with a tender, slightly sweet flesh. They are a good choice for baking because they hold their shape well. Sweet and crisp Galas have a yellow-orange skin with distinctive red striping and are also good cooked.
