I used Braeburn apples and they were so hard after cooking 45 minutes, that we had to use steak knives to cut them. Next time I'll cook them an extra 15-30 minutes so that they are tender throughout. Also, not sure why the recipe calls for so much apple juice, since it didn't reduce in cooking and had WAY more than enough to top each apple before serving.

Yum!

I am not a big fan of raisins or walnuts so I just made them plain with a little extra cinnamoon. Yummo!

Absolutely great! My granddaughter said that her son did not like raisins and nuts and would never eat this. He ate it all up and asked for more! Little does she know but I have been giving him golden raisins and nuts on his whole grain cereal every day for months. If you don't start kids on junk they will learn to eat healthfully and like healthy foods. By the way he is only 2.

I substituted pecans for walnuts, did not have any raisins or juice and still it was so good mam wanted to slap daddy twice!

THESE ARE EASY AND FUN TO MAKE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE KIDS! THEY ARE EVEN MORE FUN TO EAT TOGETHER AS A FAMILY, AND HEALTHY TOO!

This dessert was soooooo easy to make, even for an amateur cook such as myself. My husband adored it. Will definitely be making this often.

Great

First of, i'm not a kitchen person. A friend turned me onto this website and I did a bit a looking around at the recipes. I found this one and thought it would be easy enough for an inexperienced cook as myself. I made this dessert along with some pepper steak and white rice for the main course and my husband totally enjoyed it. He compared it to baked apple pie without the crust. It was fast and easy to make. I highly recommend it.

We love baked apples

My family loves baked apples, and this was a nice ending to our sunday meal. I think I will do it again for Thanksgiving too, along with all the other desserts my family requests!

Quick, easy snack. I had an apple that I didn't want to eat plain and so I adjusted the amount of ingredients in this recipe and it turned out very good.

Made the apples...very good. You may want to try a little diet black cherry soda instead of the apple juice. Brown sugar inside and cinnamon on the outside.
