The fun thing about kindergarten is that even though they get homework these days, most of the homework is fun. They were learning in-depth the letter “Aa” and part of their homework was to make these Baked Cinnamon Raisin Apples.

Just a few ingredients needed for this easy dessert.


First I cut two apples in half, and cut off the ends and the stem. I had the girls try to remove the core with a melon baller. It helped if I started it out for them.


They then filled the hole with raisins, granola…


…a teaspoon of frozen apple juice concentrate…


…and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Okay, maybe more than a sprinkle.


I cut out four squares of foil and they wrapped them up.


Then we baked the apples at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.


All done.

We ate ours with ice cream and another sprinkle of granola. I kid you not, it tasted like apple pie. We just might serve these at Thanksgiving, as this was such a perfect light little serving for after a big turkey dinner. It would be fun to set this up assembly-line style and have all the kids help.
