Units of Measurement:
1/2 Cup dried sweetened cranberries
1 Tablespoon candied ginger, finely diced
1 1/4 Cup Apple Cider, hot
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
6 Large baking apples, such as Granny Smith: peeled, cored and finely diced
To Taste Walnuts, halves


  • 1

    Put the cranberries and ginger, if using, in a small heatproof bowl and pour the hot apple cider over them. Let the mixture steep for 30 minutes, then drain, reserving the apple cider. Set aside.

    • 1/2 Cup dried sweetened cranberries

    • 1 Tablespoon candied ginger, finely diced

    • 1 1/4 Cup Apple Cider, hot

  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • 3

    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

  • 4

    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

  • 5

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

  • 6

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