Here's one for the grill. They can be baked in the oven too but I haven't tried them that way so I can't recommend a temperature or time. The recipe comes from Marlboro.
- 1⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 2 tablespoons chopped nuts (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 large baking apples (such as Granny Smith, Macintosh, or Rome)
- 2 tablespoons butter, cut into quarters
- Combine brown sugar, raisins, nuts, and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
- Core apples and place on individual sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
- Spoon mixture evenly into the center of each apple.
- Place butter on top of each apple and wrap apples tightly in foil.
- Place on a preheated grill and cover.
- Cook for about 1/2 hour or until tender.
We love these while camping. They are super easy to prepare, wrap in foil and place on the grill over the campfire. I especially like how they can be personalized by adding or omitting the raisins and nuts.
Coring the apples wasn't working for me, so I sliced the apples. I cooked them (wrapped in foil) in a 400ºF oven for about 30 minutes until nice and tender. The skin on my apples was rather tough (no fault of the recipe), so next time I'll peel the apples. Served these with French vanilla ice cream on the top -- yum!
This tastes kind of like apple pie without the crust. We cooked ours on the grill and they needed a longer cooking time than 20 minutes for the apples to get tender.
