4 servings
4 medium Rome or Granny Smith Apples, cored to within 1/2 inch of base
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
Juice and finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup broken walnuts pieces, toasted
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup apple cider
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel about 1/2 inch of skin from tops of apples with a vegetable peeler. Cut a sliver off the bottom of each apple so they will stand. Brush the peeled part and interior of each apple with lemon juice. Cut 1 tablespoon of butter into 4 pieces and place a piece of it in each apple. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest, remaining butter, brown sugar, raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. Stuff apples with mixture and place them in a small baking dish. Add cider and bake for 30-35 minutes or until tender. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
