  • Place the apples on a parchment lined baking tray and stuff them with walnut-raisin mixture.
  • Bake the apples for 45-50 minutes until apples are tender but not mushy.

*You can also soak the raising in juice, rum or cognac. It will add additional great flavor.
**If you want to stuff the apples with more walnut-raisin mixture, make the holes a little bigger.
