Baked Cinnamon Raisin Apples
Makes 10 (1/2 apple) Servings5 medium firm, sweet apples, like Honeycrisp or Fuji
3 T brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
10 T butter, halved (20 pieces)
1 cup raisins
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking dish large enough to fit apple halves with non-stick cooking spray.
Halve the apples from stem to end and use a spoon to scoop out the core, seeds, and stem. Arrange the apple halves in the baking dish with the flesh facing up. Place ½ T butter and a few raisins in each core cavity. Scatter brown sugar and cinnamon over the apples.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 minutes. Uncover the apples then bake another 20 to 30 minutes until the apples are soft and the topping has browned.
Serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce, or plain. The apples will keep for up to a week, simply reheat in a warm oven or in the microwave.
