Step 1

Place raisins in a bowl; cover with hot water and allow to stand until soft.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375F.

Step 3

Core each apple, leaving about 1/2 inch of flesh at the base of the hole you create, taking care not to poke through the bottom of the apple.

Step 4

Slice through skin only of the apple half way down all around the apple; this keeps it intact while cooking.

Step 5

Drain the raisins, then put them in a small bowl with the walnuts, stir to combine.

Step 6

Set the apples in a shallow baking pan and pack each core loosely with the walnut mixture; then pour in maple syrup to fill.

Step 7

Sprinkle a wee bit of lemon juice over each apple, then drizzle a bit more maple syrup on the exposed flesh.

Step 8

Place a thin slice of unsalted butter on the packed core of each apple.

Step 9

Pour the apple juice or water into the pan so it covers the bottom to a shallow depth.

Step 10

Bake on the middle rack of the oven until apples are cooked through (test with a toothpick); this should take 35-40 minutes.

Step 11

If it is browning too quickly, cover with a piece of foil.

The hubby really enjoyed this...I served it to him with a side of vanilla ice cream...he was in heaven...very easy to prepare...the apple I selected was on the large side so it took a bit longer to cook...I cut it down to one serving...and used the water option in place of the apple juice...made for "Billboard" tag game...
