Apples, Baked w/Maple Glaze (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon walnuts, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 large baking apples
1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Cinnamon sticks, to garnish

Preheat oven to 375°F; place water in an 8" square, baking dish.

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon.

With a small knife, core the apples, but do not cut all the way through the bottoms; peel about 1/2" of skin from the tops of the apples. Place apples in the baking dish.

Fill each apple with the brown-sugar mixture; dot with the margarine, then drizzle with the maple syrup.

Bake, basting the apples occasionally with the pan juices, until just tender, about 40 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, transfer the apples to dessert plates. Pour the pan juices over the apples. If you like, garnish each apple with a cinnamon stick.
