Dish Type


½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
6 golden delicious apples
cup firmly packed light brown sugar
5 tablespoons SKIPPY® Natural SUPER CHUNK® Peanut Butter Spread
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
as desired vanilla ice cream
PLANTERS® roasted peanuts, fresh mint sprigs, to garnish


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. In small saucepan, over medium heat, combine granulated sugar with 1 cup of water. Cook 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Pour syrup into bottom of 9- × 9-inch baking dish.

  3. Core apples, but don’t go all the way through to the bottom. (This will help keep the filling in the apple.) In medium bowl, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, and cinnamon. Divide mixture evenly among 6 apples. Place apples in baking dish over syrup.

  4. Bake 1 hour, or until a knife can be easily inserted into apples. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Garnish, if desired with chopped peanuts, and fresh mint sprigs.
