4 Braeburn apples 1/2 C. sugar 1/4 C. water 1/4 C. raisins 1/4 C. pecans 1/4 C. butter 1 C. real maple syrup
Slice top 1/8 of apple off and core the apple. Take small slice off of bottom as well. Place blended raisins, butter and pecans with a touch of sugar inside of cored apple. Blend remaining sugar and water together; pour over the apples. Bake in 350F oven until soft and browned. At this point, add the maple syrup over the apples and bake until syrup is bubbly. Serve hot with the glaze poured over the top. As an accompaniment to a pork dinner, wrap a piece of bacon around apple before baking. This will add a great flavor to the apple.
