Yield: 4 Servings


  • 4 red apples
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • Raisins or other dried fruit
  • Aluminum foil

Wash and dry your apples. Core them, but leave the bottoms intact (a job for Mom or Dad). This way you’ve made a kind of cup to hold the good stuff in the apple! Fill the centers with a Tablespoon of brown sugar. Add raisins or other dried fruit and roll the whole apple up in a sheet of foil. These can be easily slid into the coals of your Father’s Day barbecue, placed on a grill. If you’re baking them in the oven, heat to 375°F, and put them on a baking sheet for 18 to 22 minutes. When you can easily pierce the fruit with a fork (you can test it right through the foil) the apples are finished. Tastes just like apple pie! We’re topping ours with our Papa’s favorite—Incredibly Easy Ice Cream.
