"Baked apples are so simple to make...and this version has a yummy filling of chopped nuts, raisins and coconut," says Judi Klee of Nebraska City, Nebraska. "I enjoy this fruity dessert served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream."


  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon raisins
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 medium tart apple
  • Dash ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons maple syrup

  2. Cover and microwave on high for 1-3 minutes or until apple is tender, basting and rotating every minute. Serve warm.
