Experiment: baked apple slices

5 tart green apples
a good amount (1 cup?) brown sugar
a good amount (2 tbsp?) cinnamon
a dash (1/2 tsp?) nutmeg
1/2 a stick of butter
some (2/3 cup?) water

Peel and core apples. Cut into quarters, then cut each quarter into 5 or 6 slices, so the slices are about 1/4 inch thick. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg (in that order) with water in a separate bowl, blending with a fork. Pour water/spice mixture and melted butter over apples in square pyrex pan. Make sure all the apples are coated with yummy deliciousness. Bake uncovered in oven at 350 degrees, mixing/basting apples every 10-12 minutes. Bake until apples are soft but still hold their shape. Broil for a few minutes to brown if you're into that.

Updates forthcoming.

UPDATE: Tasty! I put them in for 12 minutes, then 12 minutes, then 12 minutes... and then put them under the broiler for 5 minutes. I separated the apples from the liquid. Next time, I might add flour to make the liquid thicker and more edible. Anyway, they were great on waffles.
