This is a guest favorite at the Hacienda which can serve up to 12 people. It is also ideal for one or two people since the dried mix can be stored in an air tight container for later use.
Dried mix ingredients:
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup diced walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup raisins
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbs. cinnamon
1-12 large size Macintoch, Fugi, or Rome apples
1 tbs. butter for each apple
1 stick of cinnamon for each apple
Directions: Core each apple, taking as little of the interior as possible but removing the seeds. Pack the interior 2/3 full with baked apple mix. Add 1 tbs. butter. Then pack the rest of the apple with mix. If the apple isn’t level on the bottom, thinly slice a bit off the bottom area that is too high. Place the apples in a glass baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until the skin of one of the apples begins to split. Baking time depends on the type and ripeness of the apples. When baked, place each apple in a shallow serving dish and pour a bit of the cooked apple juices over each apple. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
