What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons red hot cinnamon drop candies
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 6 cooking apples
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons raisins
  • Whipped cream

How to Make It

  1. In a small saucepan combine water, sugar, red hot cinnamon drops, and corn syrup; heat over medium heat until candy dissolves.
  2. Meanwhile peel apples about 1/3 of the way down from the top. Core but do not cut all the way through the bottom.
  3. Place apples in a 9-inch square baking dish. In the center of each apple place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 tablespoon raisins.
  4. Pour syrup over apples. Bake at 400 F for 35 to 45 minutes, frequently basting with syrup, or until apples are tender.
  1. Serve warm or cold, topped with whipped cream.
