6 apples
6 tablespoons brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter
Maple Sauce:
1/2 cup apple cider
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Rinse apples and pat dry. Core apples (remove the seeds) without piercing the bottom. Peel upper half of apples and place in a baking dish. Drop a spoonful of brown sugar in each apple. In sauce pan, dissolve cornstarch in cool cider. Add lemon juice, maple syrup, brown sugar, and spices. Stir well over medium heat until thickened. Fill each apple with the maple sauce, then top apples with 1 tablespoon of butter each. Pour 1/2 cup water in baking dish and bake for 1 hour in a 375F degree oven. Top with raisins or chopped nuts. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream on the side. You can also pour the remaining maple sauce over the ice cream or sprinkle ice cream with cinnamon.
