• 6 apples
  • 1/3c walnuts
  • 1/3c pecans
  • 1/4c golden raisins
  • 1/4c dried cherries
  • 1/4c dried apricots
  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1c apple cider


  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Spray large baking pan (with raised sides) with cooking spray
  3. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each apple, so they stand straight in pan.  Slice the tops and using a corer or melon baller, remove the center.  Carefully remove most of the flesh to create a ‘bowl’, leaving about 1/4″ of flesh around the sides and bottom
  4. Place apples in the prepared baking pan
  5. In a food processor, combine the nuts, dried fruit, 1/4c brown sugar, cinnamon, and sea salt.  Pulse until roughly minced
  6. Stuff each apple with mixture
  7. In a small bowl, combine the cider & other 1/4c brown sugar.  Mix until sugar is dissolved
  8. Spoon about 1 tsp of liquid over each apple.  Pour remaining liquid in the pan
  9. Top each apple with a slice of butter.  Cover the pan with foil and bake 20 minutes.  Remove foil and bake another 15-20 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork
  10. Serve apples in bowls and pour any remaining sauce over them.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and a dash of cinnamon
