Baked Stuffed Apples
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans, almonds or walnuts
3/4 cup raisins, craisins or dried currants
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 unpeeled tart cooking apples (like Granny Smith)
1/2 cup apple juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine pecans, raisins, sugar, butter and cinnamon; set aside.
Core apples and place in an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Score the peel of each apple in several places (this prevents the peel from shrinking).
Fill apples with raisin mixture.
Pour apple juice into the baking dish around the apple
Bake for approximately 1 hour, until apples are tender.
