Created for RSC #6. We love baked apples in our family, and are always on the lookout for interesting fillings.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Partially peel 8 apples, leaving the bottom half intact
  3. Remove the core (I use a melon baller)
  4. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of the apple if necessary to make it stand upright
  5. Place the apples in a baking dish
  6. Peel the 9th apple, cut it into 1/2 inch dice
  7. Combine the apple dice with the applesauce, raisins, apricots, cashews, 1/3 cup sugar, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  8. Toss to combine
  9. Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl
  10. Fill the apples with the stuffing
  11. Place 1/2 teaspoon of butter on top of each apple
  12. Sprinkle each apple with some of the cinnamon/sugar mixture
  13. Add white wine to the baking dish to the depth of 1/2 inch
  14. Bake for 1 hour or until tender, basting the apples occasionally with the pan juices
  15. Add water (or more wine) if neccesary
  16. Serve warm or at room temperature

These were really nice. An excellent dessert. I halved the recipe as there are only two of us and had no problems with that. I served them warm with pouring cream and my husband really enjoyed them.
