Weekly Recipes: October 23
You may use any type apple you like, but I really like how gravensteins cook up and taste for these.
8 gravenstein apples
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dried cranberries
2 teaspoons ceylon cinnamon (or whatever you have and like)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Core the apples and place in a 9" X 13" pan. Mix sugar, pecans, dried cranberries, cinnamon, butter and vanilla extract. Fill each apple with the sugar mixture. Spoon any remaining filling over and around the apples in the pan.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until skin wrinkles/cracks and filling is bubbly. Serve warm, by themselves or with vanilla ice cream.
