GRILLED BAKED APPLES

4 baking apples, such as Gala or McIntosh

¼ cup coarsely chopped walnuts

4 teaspoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon grated nutmeg

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Vanilla ice cream

Preheat grill.

Core apples. Place each cored apple on its own square of aluminum foil. Divide the walnut pieces evenly and stuff inside each apple. Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the apples. Place 1 tablespoon butter on top of each apple.

Wrap each apple in the foil, leaving a small vent at the top, and place on the grill. Close the grill lid and let the apples cook until they have softened, 30 to 40 minutes.

Serve immediately with ice cream.
