  • 4.

    Poke the skin side all over with a needle or the tip or a very sharp knife.

  • 7.

    Poke 1/2 teaspoon of butter into the well in each apple, then sprinkle over the sugar and cinnamon.

    Drain the raisins.

  • 11.

    Nudge two apple halves beside each other on each of six serving plates.

  • 12.
