This recipe can conform to the season. The same basic filling can be used to stuff apples, peaches, nectarines or pears.
• 6 pieces of favorite fruit (apples, peaches, nectarines or pears)
• 1/2 cup raisins
• 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
• 1/2 tsp vanilla
• dash of cinnamon (optional)
• apple juice
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare the fruit: apples, core and peel a 1" strip around the center of the apple; peaches and nectarines, cut in half and remove the pit; and pears, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Place fruit in baking dish.
Combine raisins, nuts, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender or food processor with just enough apple juice to facilitate blending to a course texture.
Stuff mixture in center of the apple or in pit/seed area of the other fruit. Pour apple juice into the baking dish at a depth of 1/2". Cover with foil.
Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes or until just tender.
Serve plain or with a dollop of yogurt or other favorite topping
