Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C)
In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp (30 mL) each brown sugar and butter; set aside.
Core apples with an apple corer or a small paring knife, almost to bottom, leaving base intact. With the point of the knife cut through the skin of the apple all the way round the middle, making a very shallow cut.
In a bowl, combine butter and brown sugar. Stir in nuts, raisins, cinnamon, salt and lemon juice. Pack the butter mixture into cored apples, pushing down well. Leave a mound, about a teaspoon in size, on top of each apple.
Place apples in 8 x 11 inch (20 x 28 cm) baking dish. Pour apple juice in baking dish. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the apples are very tender. Spoon a teaspoon of reserved topping over each apple. Bake additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to just warm.
If topping is browning too quickly, cover apples loosely with foil.
McIntosh apples are not recommended in this recipe as they tend to go mushy when baked.
