Baked Apples with Vanilla Ice Cream

One of my favorite activities to do with my kids during this time of year is apple picking! My girls love to run through the orchards grabbing apples off the trees and sneaking bites. I’ll usually end up with bags of apples, half of them with little bites taken out of them!

This means I have to make something with them, and quickly or else the apples will go rotten. Usually that means apple pie, which is one of my favorite treats to have with ice cream. But you can only have apple pie so often – which led to the creation of this treat!

Baked apple-anything is wonderful because you get all of the flavors of apple pie, but without the crust, which usually adds more calories and sugar to an already sweet treat. And nothing makes soft, warm, and spiced apples taste better than cold vanilla ice cream on top, right?
