Stuffed Baked Apples
|Baking apples||6 Large|
|Firmly packed brown sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Golden raisins||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Ground cinnamon||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Honey||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Water||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Grated lemon peel||1 Teaspoon|
1 Wash the apples and core, then pare about one third of the way down from the stem end.
2 Stand in a shallow baking dish, 13x9x2.
3 In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon; spoon into centers of the apples, packing down well.
4 In a small saucepan, combine honey, water, butter or margarine and lemon peel.
5 Heat, stirring constantly, to boiling; pour over the apples and cover.
6 Bake in a moderate oven at 350 degrees farenheit, basting often with syrup in the dish for 1 hour, or until the apples are tender but still firm enough to hold their shape.
7 Cool in the dish on a wire rack, spooning syrup over apples often to make a rich glaze.
8 Serve warm.
