I need to start working on my honey+apple recipes…

This one looks pretty good to try out for a simple start:
Honey-Baked Apples (from kveller.com)
Serves 4

4 baking apples, such as Cortland, Fuji, Golden Delicious or Rome
8 teaspoons honey
4 teaspoons unsalted butter
4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 cups yogurt or ice cream, for serving (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 375˚. Use a melon baller to scoop the cores and stems out of each apple, keeping the base of the apple intact. Peel a strip of skin from around the top of each cavity.
2. Place the apples in a buttered baking dish that is small enough to hold them snugly (a loaf pan holds 2 or 3 apples, a small pie plate holds 3 or 4) and fill each cavity with 2 teaspoons honey and 1 teaspoon each butter and lemon juice.
3. Bake for 25 minutes, then cover with foil and continue baking until tender, 10 to 20 minutes more.
4. Transfer the apples to shallow bowls for serving and drizzle with some of the juice from the baking dish. Alternatively, to make a caramel-like dessert sauce, pour the juices into a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat until reduced to a syrup; drizzle over the apples. Serve warm, with yogurt or ice cream if desired.
