I’m a big fan of a baked apples, especially when you throw in some cinnamon and sugar! Being that it is still apple season, I decided to bake some to serve with our dinner. They were so good, I ended up not even eating the actual meal and went straight for the apples! This would also be good as a dessert served with some vanilla ice cream.

4 Golden Delicious Apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 heaping teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Rinse and core apples, removing all seeds. Place apples in a 2 quart shallow baking dish.
Combine sugar, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar in a small bowl; fill the center of each apple and top with 1/2 teaspoon of butter. Add just enough water to baking dish to cover the bottom. Bake, uncovered for about 30 minutes, or until apples are tender.
