    In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix until smooth. Stir in the 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and the reserved cranberries and ginger.

    • 1/4 Cup walnuts, chopped

    Core the apples, from the stem end, leaving the bottom intact. (If you accidentally punch a hole in the bottom, plug it with a marshmallow). Pare 1/2-inch of skin from the equator of the apple to keep the skin from splitting as it roasts. Spoon the filling into the apples.

    Arrange the apples upright in a snug baking dish. Pour the reserved apple cider in the bottom of the dish.

    Roast the apples until they are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting occasionally with the apple cider. Serve warm garnished with walnut halves.
