Preheat your oven to 180C.
Use an apple corer to remove the cores from your apples, then carefully score around the middle of each apple, using a knife (this is really important otherwise your apple might explode!).
Lightly grease a roasting tray with butter (it’s best to use a tray that will fit your apples in snugly) and place the apples in the roasting tray.
Fill each apple with as much mincemeat as you can and pop a teaspoon of butter on top, then drizzle a tablespoon of maple syrup over each one.
Pour 200ml water into the base of your tray (this is to stop the juices burning) and cover the apples with foil.
Bake in your pre-heated oven for 45-50 minutes, until the apples are soft.
When your apples are ready, remove from the oven and take off the foil. (Be very careful as the steam is hot and may burn you!)
Transfer onto plates and serve with the juices drizzled over, extra maple syrup and a blob of brandy butter.
