1/2 Cup dried sweetened cranberries
1 Tablespoon candied ginger, finely diced
1 1/4 Cup Apple Cider, hot
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
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.
6 Ounce cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Pinch ground nutmeg
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.
6 Large baking apples, such as Granny Smith: peeled, cored and finely diced
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.
