how to make Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apple Slices

How to Make Baked Apple Slices:

  1. Peel and cut the apples. Start by peeling the apples and then slicing them into thin slices, around 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Toss in cinnamon sugar. You’ll want to coat the apple slices in cinnamon sugar. First mix the cinnamon, sugar, and a pinch of salt together in a bowl and then place the apple slices in a large bowl or in a gallon freeze bag, pour the cinnamon sugar oven them, and toss to coat.
  3. Layer apples in baking dish. Next you layer the apple slices in a greased dish fanning them out in a circle, one on top of the other, until the whole dish is filled. Top it off with a few pats of butter and pop it in the oven.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes.
Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apple Slices is the perfect Thanksgiving side dish

When the baked apple slices come out of the oven the apples are dripping with this amazing glaze of hot and bubbly caramelized sugar and cinnamon, and the whole house smells like apple pie.

You can eat them with a spoon (you’re going to want a spoon to scoop up every bit of that sauce) or you can serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top (this is my favorite way!).

Can Make Baked Apples Ahead of Time?

Yes. Once they have baked and cooled completely you can store these in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 1 week. To reheat you can place them in a sauce pan on the stove top over medium heat until warmed through or you can re-heat them in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until warmed through.
