Roasted Apples

Makes: 4 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 2-3 cooking apples, such as Golden Delicious or Rome Beauty (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Toss the slices with lemon juice in a large bowl; add sugar and toss once again. Transfer to a baking pan large enough to hold slices in a single layer. Roast, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching, until apples are tender and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
