stuffed apples

for each apple
1 tsp butter
2 tbs rolled oats
1 tbs brown sugar
3 whole pecans, chopped

Core apple and set aside. In a small bowl whisk together oats, sugar and pecans. Thoroughly cut in butter. Pack mixture firmly into cored apple from both top and bottom to get all the filling inside. Place apple on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, or until apple is tender to the tip of a sharp knife. Serve hot, unaccompanied or with cream - whipped or drizzled - or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

For 4 apples
1 generous tbs butter
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup chopped pecans

Note: single apples can be baked in a toaster oven if it has enough clearance to fit the apple inside without it touching the top element.
