    Really, really simple. Low cal and no fat. I always use the slightly bruised or tired apples at the bottom of the fruit drawer: the ones no one really wants to eat out-of-hand:

    Developed when my kids were toddlers:
    1. Peel about 1/4 of the apple from the top down.
    2. Core with point of peeler or paring knife.
    3. Drop a few raisins into the hole.
    4. Fill hole with orange juice.
    5. Place apples in deep baking container with lid-like a Corning-Ware baker. Pour in a few extra Tbs. of o.j.
    6. Toss in micro-wave and nuke for 3-5 minutes. More time if necessary to get to degree of softness you want.
    7. Put each apple in a glass custard cup, pour juice remaining in baking pan over the tops, and serve.
    Yum! Comfort food in 5 minutes!

      soak some raisins in dark rum overnight. mix the raisins with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped walnuts & stuff into coreed apples (I like to leave the skin on). place in a buttered baking pan with a little water in the bottom and bake until desired softness. pour a little fresh cream over each apple to serve.

        4. Bake 350 for 30-45 min. (until soft)

          I peel and core and then fill the core with brown sugar, maple syrup, butter and spices (Cinnamon, nutmeg, anise, mace and cardamom) I prefer Penzey's baking spice mixture myself.

          Bake in a glass or Teflon pan at 375F and then lower it to 350 after 10 minutes. They are done when you can insert a paring knife with very little resistance. You can thicken the pan juices with cornstarch and serve as a sauce, but you may need to add more brown sugar or maple syrup.
