Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the apples in a baking dish.

Combine raisins in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of warm water and allow to rest for 10 minutes. (This is an important step! If you skip this step, the raisins will burn in the oven.)

Combine all ingredients for the filling in a bowl. Divide the filling evenly among the apples.

Pour 1/2 cup water into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before eating.
