Baked Apples

Suddenly, the dessert of choice around here is Baked Apples.  You see, my parents went to the farmer's market last weekend and bought way too many apples.  They didn't buy a bushel, but they certainly have enough to share.

This simple and easy recipe is a wonderful way to get an apple a day. (wink)

Baked Apples

Wash and core 4 baking apples, such as McIntosh.
Place upright in a small "perfect for four apples" baking dish with sides.  In a separate bowl, mix a handful of dark raisins, 4 Tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon - plus a dash of nutmeg and a smidge of bourbon, if you'd like.  Spoon this mixture into the hollow center of each apple.  Pour 1/4 cup of water into the bottom of the pan.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the apples collapse.  Serve as a side dish with pork, or as a healthy alternative to dessert.
