- 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.
- 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.
