Baked Apples a la Mode

A wonderful treat for these cooler autumn days. Olivia made some for us a couple of weeks ago.

4 large McIntosh or Empire apples, cored
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup rolled oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/8 cup raisins, chopped
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 pint vanilla or caramel ice cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Sprinkle cored apples with lemon juice. Mix next 7 ingredients and over-stuff apples. Bake 20 minutes in a small oven safe dish. Transfer apples to small bowls with a spoon and top with ice cream and whipped cream.
