Winter Baking:
Warm Baked Apples
As temperatures drop in Jordan, I like to keep the cool weather at bay by indulging in simple yet decadent desserts like baked apples!

Large baking apples, washed 
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/4 cup chopped raisins (optional)
3/4 cup boiling water

1. Preheat oven to 190°C
2. Using an apple corer, cut out the cores, leaving the bottom 1/2 inch of the apples intact
3. Place the brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans and raisins (if using) in a small bowl and stir to combine
4. Put the apples in a baking dish and stuff each apple with the sugar stuffing mixture
5. Place a little butter on top of the sugar
6. Pour the boiling water into the bottom of the baking dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes until the apples are cooked through and tender, but not overcooked and mushy
7. When done, remove the apples from the oven and top with vanilla sauce (you can find packs in the supermarket) or vanilla ice cream
