Serves Serves 6
6 large McIntosh apples
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup musli cereal with nuts
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Freshly grated nutmeg
Vanilla bean ice cream, for topping

Preheat oven to 375F.

Peel the skin from the top third of the apples. Using a melon baller, scoop out a cavity for stuffing and remove the cores. Dress the apples with a little lemon juice and trim up the bottoms if necessary so the apples sit upright.

Combine the stuffing ingredients in a small bowl then overfill the apples, mounding the cereal mixture up a bit. Bake until bubbly and tender but not mushy, about 20 minutes. Top with small scoops of vanilla ice cream.
