Baked Stuffed Apples
Wipe and core the apples, but do not peel them.
Cut each across with a sharp knife, and fill the cavity in each apple with a mixture of dried fruit and sugar. Put them on a greased baking tin or in a shallow heat-proof dish, surrounded by a very little water.Cover the apples with greaseproof paper and bake in a moderate oven (350F.) for about 3/4 of an hour.
Some large apples may require about 1 hours baking, but avoid over-cooking, or the skins will burst and the apples will lose their shape.
Serve with custard, drizzled with maple syrup, or Ice cream on the side.
(If preferred, just core and stuff the apples without cutting across.)
