A guilt-free simple and delicious dessert that you can feel good about eating!

4 servings

4 firm cooking apples eg.Granny Smith, Golden Delicious

8 Tbsp. raisins

Cinnamon to taste

Topping:

½ cup raw cashew pieces

Pure vanilla extract

With a knife, cut apples horizontally around the middle to keep the skin from splitting during baking.  Core apples and fill the center of each with 2 Tbsp. raisins.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes, or until tender.  While apples are baking, whirl cashew in a blender, adding water gradually until you get the consistency you prefer.  The longer you blend, the smoother the mixture becomes. Add a few drops of pure vanilla extract for extra flavour.  Spoon over hot apples.
