Do you remember baked apples as a child? I do. My Mother would bake them as a “sensible” dessert in the fall and winter months. And they were always served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Well here is my adult version! The aroma reminds me of a freshly baked apple pie, with all the nutty flavored spices and butter. This is the perfect light dessert and ideal as the finish to a Sunday family dinner of roasted chicken, beef or pork Roast.

Ingredients

  • 8 baking apples, such as Johnathan or Golden Delicious, cored
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup dry white wine (I have also used 'White Vermouth' and it has worked well)
  • 16 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Sprinkling of cinnamon

Preparation

  • 1 Adjust the rack to be in the middle position. Place the apples in an oven proof baking dish or small roasting pan. Add the water to the pan.
  • 2 In each cavity of the apple, divide the butter and raisins. Then drizzle the wine over the apples and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon.
  • 3 Cover loosely with foil, and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until the apples are fork tender.
  • 4 Service with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and a great cup of Coffee!
