This is a great recipe and like they say, it taste like autumn. I have made this recipe for years and was going to post it today but realize it was already on here. My picky eater son will eat 2 pork chops baked like this and I always try to have it for company in the fall and winter because your house just smells wonderful while it is baking. I even make this dish in our RV while on vacation and camping, you can make friends very fast at a campground when this is in the oven or baking in a dutch oven over the fire. Enjoy! PS. Double the apples because the cook will not get any if you don't.
- 6 boneless pork chops
- 3 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (I use Granny Smith)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter

- pepper, to taste
- 1⁄2 cup cranberry juice
