Emeril Lagasse prepared an adaptation of this recipe last year on a Martha Stewart Halloween special and we have adapted it. It is not necessarily true that an apple a day will keep the doctor away, because this doc LOVES them.

I use a Pampered Chef apple corer to core out the apples. We use Granny Smiths because they are a little harder, but you can use any you’d like. We use various pumpkin carving tools to carve faces onto our apples. We then stuff them with a mixture of oats, brown sugar or molasses, raisins (full of antioxidents), wheat germ, using a little bit of melted butter to hold it together long enough to make it to the centers of our apples. We then coat them with a nice maple syrup and put in a baking dish with about 1/4 inch of water on the bottom. We used a Pampered Chef deep dish baker. I put the lid on and bake them for about 20-30 minutes with the lid on. They are so delish with a little vanilla ice cream while still warm.

This is a great healthy activity to do with the kids and teaches them that eating healthy doesn’t have to taste bad.
