Camp Recipes – The Campfire Gourmet: Baked Cinnamon Apples

January 26, 2012 in Dessert Recipes by amylaree

Nate knew that our first camping excursion could’ve been a make-or-break experience for introducing me to the great outdoors, so he took every step to make sure it’d be a great experience… with special attention to our camping meals.  And boy did he make a good call on that… no hot dogs on a stick for us.  Ever since that first trip when we threw foil packets of Peppered Chicken with Roasted Rosemary & Garlic Potatoes & Peas  on the campfire, finding great camping recipes has been a top priority.

That’s why we’re creating a new section of the blog dedicated to great camp recipes… because a long day of hiking deserves a great reward.

Apples wrapped & ready for the coals.

These Baked Cinnamon Apples are the perfect treat on a cool night after a long day on the trails. By chopping up the butter and blending it with the brown sugar, the flavors glaze both the inside and outside of the apple, making every bite like a mini-apple pie.
