Baked Apples

A nice little treat on a blustery, brisk, fall day....or a good little General Conference break snack.

4 medium apples, washed
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup raisins
cinnamon candies (optional)

While Momma cuts top of apples off, cores them and places them upside down in a large microwave safe dish. (something like and 8X8 Pyrex) Kendra measures and mixes the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Pack each apple first with raisins, pushing them to the bottom of the apple to kind of seal them, add a few cinnamon candies (if desired) and then pack the rest of the apple core with the sugar mixture. Little fingers work well to get all the ingredients nice and tight in there. Then pour apple juice into bottom of dish. Place dish in microwave and heat at full power for 3 minutes. Basts apples with juice from bottom of dish (a Mom job) and heat another 3 -5 minutes until apples are tender. Take out and let cool a good 5 - 10 minutes - will be VERY HOT. With a large spoon, place each apple in a bowl, (slice it up for the little ones) then spoon the juices over each apples. Can be served with a nice sized scoop of frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream.
