Ingredients

Fresh apple(s)

2 large, Rome

Unpacked light brown sugar

3 tbsp(s)

Raisins

2 tbsp(s)

Chopped walnuts

tbsp(s)

Honey

1 tbsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Halve the apples crosswise, then partially core them to create a small cavity. Cut a paper-thin slice from the bottom of each apple half so they stand upright. Place the halves, core-side up, in a microwavable pie plate. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, the raisins, walnuts, honey and cinnamon. Spoon into the cavities, then sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar.
  2. Cover the pie plate with plastic wrap, venting it. Microwave on High until the apples are tender, 5-6 minutes. Carefully remove the plastic wrap; place the apples on 4 dessert plates.
  3. Microwave the pan juices on High until syrupy, 2-4 minutes. Spoon over the apples. Serve warm or at room temperature.
