Baked Apple Dessert
 
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 Large Apples
  • ¼ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Chopped Pecans
  • ¼ cup Chopped Raisins
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • ¾ cup Boiling Water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples with hot, soapy water. Remove cores to ½ inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about ¾-inch to an inch wide. Remove as little flesh as possible.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top each apple with a dot of butter (1/4 of the tablespoon).
  3. Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
