Juicy, sweet and flavourful. A drizzle of vanilla yogurt and scattering of crunchy pecans is a delicious finishing touch.

Ingredients

Fresh apple(s)

6 medium, Golden Delicious-variety

Raisins

¾ cup(s), chopped, or a combination of dried fruit bits*

Apple cider

1 cup(s)

Maple syrup

2 tbsp(s)

Fat-free vanilla yogurt

¼ cup(s)

Chopped pecans

2 tbsp(s), toasted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut a thin slice across bottom and top of apples. Use a melon baller or sharp knife and spoon to core apples, making sure not to go all the way through to the bottom. Stuff each apple with 2 tablespoons raisins or dried fruit.
  3. Place apples in a baking pan. In a small bowl, combine cider and maple syrup; pour around apples. Bake, basting thoroughly with pan juices every 10 minutes, until apples are soft and cooked through, about 55 to 65 minutes total. Before serving, drizzle apples with pan sauce, yogurt and pecans. Yields 1 apple, 2 teaspoons yogurt and 1 teaspoon pecans per serving.

Notes

*Most supermarkets carry dried fruit bits but in a pinch feel free to substitute an equal amount of diced dried apricots, raisins, currants, cranberries, cherries, or whatever dried fruit you have on hand.
