Helen's Baked Apples

Helen's Baked Apples

6 large apples*
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 Tbls. granulated sugar

Core apples, pare 1/3 way down from stem. Arrange in shallow baking dish or pan. Boil sugar and water 10 minutes. Pour over apples. Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees) one hour or until tender, basting frequently. Then sprinkle each apple with 1 tsp. sugar. Place pan under broiler, basting them frequently and watch carefully until sugar has melted and is a delicate brown. Serve with whipped cream.
*Use a good baking apple.
*I think I would prefer these with some cinnamon on them for better flavor. If you would, too, then add about 1 tsp. cinnamon to the sugar water mixture after it has boiled and before pouring over apples.
