Harvest Baked Apples

8 medium baking apples
1/2 cup apple or orange juice
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Preheat oven to 350°.  Remove cores from apples to within 1/2 in of bottoms of apples; pierce the skins with a sharp knife.  Place apples in shallow baking dish.

Combine juice, sugar and cinnamon; pour over apples.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender, basting occasionally with the juice mixture.  Remove apples from oven. Combine cheese, raisins and pecans; spoon evenly into centers of apples.  Let stand 1 minute.
