Baked Apples

Baked Apples

4 large apples, your choice
4 – 6T. dried fruit (raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dates, sweetened flaked coconut, etc.)
2 T. pure maple syrup or honey 
¼ t. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 T. Earth Balance spread
½ c. pure apple juice or fresh orange juice

Preheat your oven to 375.  Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Peel and core the apples – scraping out all seeds.Once all apples are cored, place them in your baking dish and set aside. In a small bowl, combine dried fruit with syrup, cinnamon, and salt.  Divide this mixture evenly among the apples, packing it into the center of each with the back of a spoon. Spread a little bit of Earth Balance over the top of the filling on each apple. Pour juice over the apples. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, basting with juice a couple times. Remove the foil and cook for another 15-20 minutes or until apples are soft. Serve warm.

This serves 4.
