    strawberrybird's Note:

    This recipe from Cook's Illustrated takes a little more work than regular baked apples, but the effort is well worth it. The result is a crisp, flavorful apple.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    apples

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Peel, core, and cut 1 apple into 1/4-inch dice.
    3. 3
      Combine 5 tbsp butter, brown sugar, cranberries, pecans, orange zest, oats, cinnamon, and diced apple in a large bowl; set aside.
    4. 4
      Shave a thin slice off the bottom of the remaining six apples so they sit flat. Cut top 1/2 inch off stem end of apples and reserve. Peel apples and use a melon baller or small measuring spoon to remove 1 2/-inch diameter core, being careful not to cut through the bottom of the apple.
    5. 5
      Melt remaining butter in 12-inch ovensafe skillet over medium heat. Once foaming subsides, add apples, stem-side down, and cook until cut surface is golden brown, about 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Flip apples, reduce heat to low, and spoon filling inside, mounding excess filling over cavities; top with reserved apple caps.
    7. 7
      Add maple syrup and 1/3 cup cider to skillet. Transfer skillet to oven, and bake 35-40 minutes, or until skewer inserted into apple meets little resistance. Baste even 10 minutes with maple syrup mixture in skillet.
    8. 8
      Transfer apples to serving platter. Stir up to 2 tbsp remaining cider into sauce to adjust consistency. Pour sauce over apples and serve.
