Baked Apples

We had some friends over for supper Thursday evening and I fixed one of Allan's favorite dishes, baked apples. I thought I'd share the recipe with others who may be interested. This works a serving of fruit into a "meat and potatoes" meal and makes a wonderful side dish.
Baked Apples
7-9 apples peeled and quartered
Place in baking dish.
Mix together 1 heaping teaspoon of cornstarch, 3/4 cup water and 2 Tbs. of sugar. Pour over apples. Sprinkle 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar over apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and dot with slivers (about 1 1/2 tablespoons) of margarine. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350° until apples are soft.

For those who have my mom's recipe, this one is the same but cuts out 1 cup of sugar. I found you don't even miss it. Enjoy!
