DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Uncover, and carefully pour off the water and continue baking until very tender and golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.
