Baked Apples with Yogurt Sauce

4 tart crisp apples
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup raisins
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/3 cup lowfat or fat free yogurt
1/4 cup real maple syrup

Core apples and remove the peel from the top of the apple about an inch down. Make a small cut through skin around center of each apple to prevent the skin from bursting. Place the apples upright in a baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, raisins, nutmeg and cinnamon. Spoon into the cored center of each apple. Add enough water to cover bottom of baking dish. Bake, uncovered at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until the apples are tender when pierced with a fork. While the apples bake combine the yogurt and maple syrup to make the sauce. Pour over the baked apples and serve.
