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

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.

  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
