Diet.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Baking apples 4 Large
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
  Canned unsweetened crushed pineapple 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Raisins 2 Tablespoon
  Cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Unsweetened apple juice 4 Cup (64 tbs)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Peel top third of each apple.
3. Remove core but leave bottom intact so the hollow can be filled.
4. Cut a thin slice from bottom, if necessary, so apple stands upright without toppling.
5. Combine honey, pineapple, raisins and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
6. Spoon mixture equally into each apple hollow.
7. Place apples in a baking dish.
8. Sprinkle additional cinnamon over peeled apple surfaces.
9. Surround with apple juice to a depth of about 1/2 inch to prevent scorching.
10. Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.
11. Baste with juice in pan several times during baking to keep moist.
12. When done, apple will be tender, but not mushy.
If not ready after 1 hour, continue to bake.
13. Depending on size and variety, baking time can be as much as 15 minutes longer.
14. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled if desired, garnish with lightly sweetened yogurt or nonfat whipped topping just before serving.
