Baked Apples with Raisins


My mother would talk about when she was little and my grandmother would make baked apples how they tasted and it would almost make my mouth water. I never thought to have my mother show me how she made them so I search for the right combination. This is a great way to do it in a slow cooker. It lets me have them in the middle of the summer and not make the kitchen hot from the oven.

6 baking apples, cored
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup Cinnamon Sugar (see recipe)
1 cup hot water
Place the cored apples upright in the slow cooker. Fill the center of each apple with one-sixth of the raisins. In a small bowl, combine the water and Cinnamon Sugar, then pour the mixture over the apples.
Cover and cook on Low for 3 to 5 hours.
This will leave you house smelling like the holiday and you can almost feel the crisp cool air even if it is just the AC kicking on.
