1/4 cup  golden raisins

Travis London

Freshly grated nutmeg


Preheat oven to 400F and place apples in an ovenproof baking dish or skillet. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine all the ingredients except nutmeg and heat briefly until just hot. Stuff mixture into each apple, sprinkle with nutmeg, and place in oven to bake for 20-30 minutes, until apples are soft.

Chic Tip: For a chicer presentation when serving, serve each apple over a plate sprinkled with cinnamon and top with a dollop of Greek yogurt.

Healthy Fact: The old motto "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" appears to be true as studies have shown apple consumption to be associated with reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, asthma and type 2 diabetes.
