    FloridaNative's Note:

    Serve these tender apples with a sweet-tart filling alongside roasted turkey or pork, a delicious pairing with the apples' hint of cardamom - though you could substitute cinnamon. They make a great stuffing alternative for those who don't eat wheat or gluten. They're also tasty for breakfast, snack or dessert -- perhaps with whipped cream.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cut 1/2 inch off the top of the apples and reserve tops. Use a paring knife or spoon to hollow out the apples, leaving about a 1/2-inch thick wall and base. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Add cranberries, honey, cardamom, dates and orange juice and zest and cook until the cranberries begin to collapse and liquid thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in almonds.
    5. 5
      Spoon cranberry mixture into apples then replace the apple tops. Put into a small baking dish filled with 1/4 inch water, cover with foil and bake until tender, 15 to 30 minutes (depending on apples).
    6. 6
      Uncover, and carefully pour off the water and continue baking until very tender and golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.

      These ARE OUTSTANDING! I added my own little twist using date molasses (Middle Eastern, sometimes called black honey in Yemen I think) instead of the regular honey. I did need to add a bit more as it's not as sweet potent. DD and I had this as a dessert with half the fat canned whipped cream and more date syrup drizzled on top. I had really waxed granny smith apples so I peeled the skin before presenting. A total make again!

      Made these just for the 2 of us, & it was a very successful trial to see how they would be as a dessert for a group of 6 we're having here in another 10 days! OUTSTANDING is the word for these baked apples! Absolutely enjoyed the combo of fruits & nuts here & will be keeping this recipe on hand for other occasions as well ~ Thanks for sharing it!
