From Mrs. Gosset, my Home Economic teacher in 1964. You know, it has been a long time since I did these recipes and her name may have been Mrs. Gossar -- I don't really remember, but she was an organized and excellent teacher and we learned a lot. My mom promoted my cooking learning at home but my teacher got me really into it and widened my horizons.

2Sprinkle each apple with 2 Tbsp sugar, raisins if desired, and cinnamon (Can cut sugar down to 1 Tbsp per if prefer to reduce sugar.)If the apples are sweet enough, you may not need any sugar.
3For each apple pour 3 Tbsp water into pan and bake at 300 to 400 degrees until nearly tender. Test with a fork from the center.
4STEP TWO:
Remove from the oven and stir into the juice a thickening made of cornstarch and water. Continue stirring constantly and bast apples with mixture.
5Return to the oven and allow to bake at least 10 min. longer. or until juice is clear and thickened.

7The recipe is easy to adjust if you need to make more apples -- just remember that some of the ingredients are "per apple" rather than per baking dish.
