Baked Apples

Apples seem to always be in season. Every trip to the supermarket and you’ll find apples. I love good ole apple pie, baked apples, caramel apples and apples with peanut butter. But, I’m sorry, the apples on this little chest I found for $4, just had to go. I loved the brass hardware, but the apples just didn’t seem to make a tasteful addition.

I taped off the hardware, wiped down the chest with alcohol and applied two coats of Amy Howard Chelsea Square One Step Paint. I’ve fallen in love with this paint. No stripping. No sanding. No priming.  Just painting and waxing is optional.

I then applied one coat of Amy Howard Dark Wax with a clean cloth.

My daughter claimed this chest the day I brought it home. She needed a bedside chest to store her journal, tv remote and a few other items.

Now that this project is finished, I’m in the mood for a baked apple. I may not like them painted on small trunks, but … I love them sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon.


  • 2 lbs apples (either Cortland or Gala for best results), cored and chopped
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Toss the chopped apples with the cinnamon, lemon juice and brown sugar and place in a baking or casserole dish.
  2. Cook apples, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes until soft and juicy. Serve for dessert with ice cream or with roast meat for dinner.

    It look like a totally different chest and I like it much better. Bet Amy likes it also. The recipe sounds good too and think I will have to give it a try.
