Baked Apples!

These baked apples serve a few purposes: they're nourishing, a pleasure to eat, and make your home smell like a dream. Cinnamon, clove, walnuts, dried currants, flame raisins, coconut and butter fill these crisp fruits with the finest potpourri!

Baked Apples:
*2-4 crisp apples (your favorite)
*1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
*handful dried currants
*handful flame raisins
*1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
*pinch ground cinnamon
*pinch ground clove
*1 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temp

Preheat oven to 350. Rinse apples. Cut the core from apples. Cut away a bit extra to create space for filling. Dice this extra cut out portion for filling. Place cored apples on a lined baked sheet or small oven safe dish. In a small bowl, mix together diced apple, coconut, raisins, currants, walnuts and spices. Using your fingertips, blend in the butter until well incorporated. Pack mixture into the prepared apples. Bake on center rack until apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Enjoy the baking aromatics. Cool slightly before serving.
