Baked Apple Recipe

9 -10 medium rome apples (Rome recommended because they are right texture to hold their shape when baked)
1⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄2 cup raisins
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1⁄2 cup brown sugar (I used regular, but dark would be fine also)
1⁄2 cup melted butter
1⁄4 cup butter (cut into little pats to top each apple)
Cut small slice off top and bottom of apple so it will stand up. Core the apple.
Combine cloves, cinnamon, raisins, chopped nuts, brown sugar and melted butter.
Stuff mixture into each apple and mound slightly at top.
Top each apple with small pat of butter.
Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
