  • Well, many people bake apples differently. You can use different varieties of apples also. Some people put brown sugar, butter, raisins, or red hots (hard cinnamon) candy into recipe....anyway, you can cook them to your own taste. :-)

  • Baking apples hold their shape better than sauce apples. So if you want to bake a pie, a cobbler, or baked apples, you'll choose an apple that holds its shape so it doesn't get too mushy- which would be a baking apple. Mackintosh is one I like for baking, but then I also use it for sauce- I cook it and then mash it up with a fork or potato masher to get a lumpy applesauce.

  • Exactly as chefjen states - Granny Smith and MacIntosh.
    I love to use the tart Granny Smiths in all my baking so that it balances with the sweet ingredients. The ingredients you add also become more savory upon the palate, but that's just my opinion. :)
    Enjoy!
