- 4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious,
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 3/4 cup boiling water
1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2
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 3/4-inch to an inch
2 In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon,
currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square
baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with a dot of
butter (1/4 of the Tbps).
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.
Serve warm with vanilla icecream on the side.
Makes 4 servings.
