Scalloped Apples

adapted from A Recipe Repertoire


4 large tart apples, cored and sliced
1 t. cinnamon
1 ½ T. flour
3 T. sugar
¼ c. water
1 T. lemon juice
2 T. unsalted butter
1 ½ c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Core and slice apples and place them in a large bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon, flour and sugar over the apples and toss them with your hands until apples are evenly coated.
3. Arrange apples in a 1 ½ quart casserole dish so that they are slightly overlapping. Mix water and lemon juice together in a bowl and pour over the apples (this prevents the apples from browning). Top apples with dots of butter.
4. Cover casserole dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
5. After the time is up remove the foil and sprinkle cheese evenly over the apples. Recover the dish and return it to the oven. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

It is essential to have a simple savory apple dish on hand for fall cooking, and there is nothing better than apples with cheese. Feel free to experiment with any cheese or spice you like – the flavor possibilities are almost endless! This works well served alongside pork loin, tenderloin or roast chicken. I’ve even served it as a Thanksgiving side dish.

Naptime Stopwatch

Coring and slicing four apples takes about 5 minutes and then rest of the time is just baking. It took me about 35 minutes (including baking time) to make this dish – that can’t be beat!

Naptime Reviews

My daughter has joined my apple-loving ranks and happily gobbled this up. It is also proved sophisticated enough for her father, who devoured it as well. It is always nice to have dishes that everyone loves, especially when they are healthy and easy to make.
