Baked Stuffed Apples
4 large apples (some that are good for baking: Jonagold, Honey Crisp, Cortland, or Gala)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped raisins
1 Tbsp butter, cut into quarters
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 wide.
2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, 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.
