  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Core apples, then pare each 1/4 of the way down. Place apples in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup Sugar Twin, and pecans. Evenly stuff mixture into center of apples.
  4. Stir remaining 1/4 cup Sugar Twin and margarine into boiling water. Pour evenly over apples.
  5. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender, basting with liquid every 15 minutes. Serve warm.
  • A self-seal sandwich bag works great for crushing graham crackers.
