Baked Apples With Honey Syrup
4 medium cooking apples 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional) 1/4 cup golden raisins 1 tsp honey 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground cloves 1 cup water 1 cup honey 1 tsp lemon juice 1 cinnamon stick whipped cream, optional
Procedures : Core apples, being careful not to cut through bottom. Pare 1/2 inch at the stem end. Combine raisins and walnuts, if used, and 1 tsp honey with the ground cinnamon and ground cloves. Fill the center of the apples with this mixture. Place the apples in a 8"" by 8"" baking pan. In a small saucepan combine water, honey, lemon juice and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and pour syrup over apples. Bake in a preheated 375 oven until tender, about 45 minutes, basting occasionally with syrup from the pan. Serve warm or cold, with whipped cream if desired"
