For the Baked Apples:
- 6 medium baking apples *
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries (craisins or raisins)
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup walnuts finely chopped, optional
- 1 cup hot water
To serve (Optional):
- Unsweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
- Caramel Sauce
How to Make Stuffed Baked Apples:
Preheat oven to 375˚F. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg and stir with a fork. Stir in 1/3 cup dried cranberries and set aside.
Wash and core the apples using a melon baller, or small paring knife, leaving base intact to keep the filling in – don’t cut all the way through! Place apples in casserole dish just big enough to hold apples without touching.
Divide the filling evenly between apples. Top each stuffed apple with 1/2 Tbsp butter, top with walnuts if using and sprinkle with any remaining cinnamon mixture.
Pour 1 cup hot water into the casserole dish and bake at 375˚F for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until apples are soft (but not mushy). Baking time can vary by the type and size of apples you are using. My Jonagold apples (pictured here) were perfect after 45 minutes but I’ve had larger Braeburn apples take 1 hour.
*Apples should be firm, crisp and tart. Great apple options for this recipe include: Rome Beauty, McIntosh, Jonagold, Fuji, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or even Braeburn.
