have any leftover apples from fall that may be on their way to the trash can? if so, here is a healthier dessert than the average apple pie...mom's simple baked apples
what you need...1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup water
what to do...core out the apples 3/4 of the way down...don't break to the bottom of the apple though! in a side bowl mix through the first three ingredients in a small bowl. stuff this into the apples until they are filled. place the apples in a 9x9 pyrex. place a small sliver of butter on top of each apple (maybe use 1 TBSP total for all 4 combined...so not too much). put the 3/4 cup water around the apples (not in them) so that they bake in the water. bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. the skin of the apple will break so don't be alarmed...this is a great warm dessert for these cold days that we've had!!!
