When apples are just tender, turn the oven off. Let apples stand in oven for 10 minutes. This will help keep them from falling apart.


  • 4 apples, such as Honey Crisp or Rome Beauty
  • 1/2 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 Teaspoon McCormick Apple Pie Spice
  • 1/4 Cup raisins
  • 1/2 Cup water


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Remove cores from apples using a melon baller, leaving bottom of apples intact.

Pierce skin of apples with a fork.

Place apples in 9-inch square baking dish. 

Mix brown sugar, melted butter and apple pie spice in medium bowl. Stir in raisins.

Fill core of each apple with about 2 tablespoons of the raisin mixture, mounding on top as necessary.

Pour water into dish.

Bake 1 hour, or until apples are tender.
