    I did alter the recipe a little bit--not the ingredients, just the method. I only had 2 apples for the 3 of us, so I cut them in half, cored them with a tablespoon, and filled them with the raisin mint mixture. My daughter LOVED these, and it's a creatively different way to use up some mint from the garden. We will make these again, they were delicious!  -  05 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I followed the recipe exactly, and my family really didn't like this at all. I didn't find it too extraordinary myself. I'm kind of disappointed that I wasted apples on this recipe and won't be making this dish again.  -  28 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The mint gives it a refreshing twist. The taste is lighter than that of traditional baked apples. One note: I only baked mine for 30 minutes and they were done, so I think 50 minutes would turn them to mush.  -  29 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
