SPICED BAKED APPLES - Halloween Favorite!


5 apples
5 tablespoonfuls sugar
1 lemon
Whole cloves

Wash and core the apples. They may be pared if desired. Stick 2 or 3 whole cloves in each apple. Place the apples in a baking-dish, put 1 tablespoonful of sugar in the cavity of each apple, and a slice of lemon on the top. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the baking-dish. Cover, bake at 400 degrees F. until soft. Serve cold. If the apples are very sour, more sugar should be used.
