I used Granny Smith apples and skipped the coconut only because I didn't have any. I topped each apple with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of the juices from the baking pan. This was so freaking good. One of the best things I have eaten in a while.

I loved the apples. I ate the apples just as written, no ice cream or whipped topping here. The cinnamon and brown sugar combination was delicious. I will definitely make these apples again. I did have to cook the apples another 5 minutes.

This was really, really good. I didn't have any coconut though, so I just cut up some of the inside of the apple and mixed it in with the spices and butter before putting it back into the apple to back. I also cut the bottom of the apple to make it stand flat and cut the top of the apple off- then used toothpicks to fasten the "lid" back onto the apple. Very good, though I'm going to have to try it with coconut.

These were decent. I was looking for a healthy desert...techincally, these were healthier but they were average at best.
