Mint baked apples

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 40–50 minutes

2 large red baking apples (about 8 ounces each)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden raisins
2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons reduced-calorie margarine

Preheat oven to 350°F. Core apples through the top, stopping 1/2 inch from the bottom. Peel a 1-inch strip off the top of each apple around the hole. Place apples in a shallow baking dish; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, raisins, and mint. Fill the apples with the raisin mixture. Top the raisin filling in each apple with 1 teaspoon margarine. Carefully pour 1/4 inch water around (not over) apples. Bake uncovered for 40–50 minutes, or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove apples from remaining water and serve warm or chilled.

Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/2 apple
