DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Peel the skin from the top third of each apple.
  • With a melon baller or a paring knife core the apples, leaving the bottom intact so that it can hold the delicious filling.
  • In a bowl combine the pecans, raisins, sugar, butter, orange rind, flour and cinnamon, blend well.
  • Gently stuff the apples with the mixture.
  • Place the filled apples upright in a small baking dish and pour the apple cider over top of the apples.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the apples from the oven, (keep them covered) drain the cider, into a small pot and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, set aside until needed.
  • In a small pan, on medium, heat the sugar and orange juice until sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes or until sugar has turned a golden color.
  • Carefully pour the reserved apple cider into the orange sugar mixture. It will bubble and spit, once it has stopped then slowly stir to blend together.
  • When ready to serve pour sauce over the apples and enjoy.
