Wash and core apples. Arrange apples in a baking dish. Mix raisins and nuts and pack into center of apples. Combine butter, brown sugar and lemon juice. Pour mixture into and over apples. Add water to baking dish. Bake in 350 degree oven 45 to 60 minutes, basting with syrup in pan.
Spoon syrup over apples before serving.
I like mine with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream.
