Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Cut apples in half lengthwise and cut out the core to make a deep well. Sprinkle cut side of apples with 1 teaspoon of the thyme. Place apple halves, cut side down in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Pour apple cider over apples in baking dish. Bake, covered, 25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine the raisins, feta cheese, and remaining thyme. Toss mixture with olive oil.

  • Remove apples from oven and turn them cut side up. Spoon apple cider in bottom of dish over apples. Spoon mixture into centers of apples halves; mound filling as needed. Bake apples, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until the filling is just heated through.

  • Transfer apple halves to serving platter. Strain juices through a strainer lined with 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth, if desired. Measure juices. If necessary, add enough apple cider to make 3/4 cup. Bring to boiling in a small saucepan over high heat. Continue boiling about 10 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1/4 cup and slightly thickened. Spoon over apple halves to serve. Makes 6 servings.
