    If you like it (like me), you can put a little more maple syrup directly in the bottom of the dish too, it's impossible to put too much maple syrup...

    If you have used an apple-peeler, you can push a toothpick through each apple to hold it together.

    Put the dish in the oven.

    Let the apples cook until they are soft (about 30 minutes).

    If possible during cooking pour the juice from the bottom of the plate over the apples with a spoon.

    Remove toothpicks if used and enjoy!

    You can serve this dessert with a tablespoon of "crème chantilly" (whipped cream) - pure delight!

Remarks:

If your apples are a bit too sweet, you can add a dash of lemon juice before putting in the oven.
