Ingredients

  • 4 LG good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold
  • ¼ C Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ C currants or chopped raisins
  • ¼ C chopped pecans or your favorite nuts (optional)
  • ¼ C toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1 T butter
  • ¾ C boiling water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Prepare the apples by first washing and drying the apples. Do not peel. Cut off the top stem area, about a quarter to half inch down from stem. You can discard this or reserve for a “cover” if desired.
  3. Using a sharp paring knife, a small metal scoop or an apple corer, remove the cores, leaving the bottom half inch of the apples intact. After removing the core, the openings should be about an inch or so wide.
  4. Mix the “stuffing” by combining Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, pecans/walnuts, and/or pumpkin/sunflower seeds, in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Place the apples into baking dish and then stuff each apple with the mixture from the bowl. Add a small dollop of butter (¼ tsp.) on top of the stuffing. Sprinkle top with a little white granulated Pioneer® Sugar if desired. Replace the apple top if you kept them.
  6. Pour the boiling water into the bottom of the baking dish around the apples. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until the apples are cooked through and tender, but not overcooked and mushy. Remove apples from the oven and baste them with the juices from the pan.
  7. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream — and some caramel sauce if desired!
