An easy dessert that can bake while you prepare the rest of your meal – it’ll ready just when you are ready to serve I and it’ll be full of delicious fall yumminess!


  • 6 large baking apples
  • 1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. golden raisins
  • 1/4 c. chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Wash apples and core, then pare about 1/4 of the way down from the stem end so they sit flat. Stand them in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Mix brown sugar, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  4. Spoon mixture into the centers of the apples, and pack them down well.
  5. Combine honey, water, butter and lemon zest to boiling in a small sauce pan. Pour over the center of each apple.
  6. Bake in oven, basting often with syrup, for one hour or until apples are tender but still firm enough to hold their shape.
  7. Serve warm – alone or with whipped cream or ice cream.
