Baked apples

Makes 12 servings
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or other nuts)
1/2 cup honey
6 large apples
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
boiling water
1.  Mix nuts with honey.  Core apples to within 1/2 inch of bottom, being careful not to pierce the bottom of the apples.
2.  Fill the cavity with walnut-honey mixture.  Dot the top of each apple with butter and, if desired, sprinkle the cinnamon.
3.  Place the apples in an ovenproof dish just big enough to hold them.  Pour boiling water to 1 inch level; cover with foil.
4.  Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees, or until tender but hold shape.  Serve warm or cold.
