Baked Apples

Makes 4 servings


4 large baking apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans*
1/4 cup currants or raisins*
1 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup boiling water


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2" of the bottom of the apples. You can use an apple corer or a pairing knife. Make the hole 3/4" wide and take out the seeds. In a small bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place the apples in a 8” x 8"baking dish. Stuff each apple with the sugar mixture. Top with a dot of butter. Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 40 - 45 minutes until tender, but not mushy. Remove from oven and baste apples several times with pan juices.

*May substitute any of the nuts or dried fruits for another variety.
