For this great holiday dessert, apples are wrapped in a pie crust and stuffed with a sweet cranberry and orange mixture. This was made for me years ago by an older lady and I begged her for the recipe.

  • Mix the sour cream, cranberries, brown sugar, and orange zest together and set aside. Slice each pie crust into three strips. Wrap each cored apple with one strip of pastry, covering the bottom of the apple, but leaving the top open. Fill each apple with the prepared filling. Place the wrapped and filled apples into a baking dish.

  • Bake the apples in the preheated oven until the pastry is evenly browned and the apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Let the apples stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.

I made this recipe with my 7 yr old daughter. It was easy enough that I cored the apples and showed her how to wrap them and she did the rest. They are a delicious twist to the baked apple. We'll be making these again! Thanks for the recipe Read More

Perhaps I did something wrong? The concept of this recipe is a good one but it certainly didn't turn out the way I had hoped. The pie crust didn't stay on the apple but instead slid down and formed a mess at the bottom of the apple. Also I cooked it for more like 40 mins but the crust never browned. =( I'm going to try it again - because the apple tasted really good. But as written this is not a 5-star recipe. Note: It could also use some cinnamon and vanilla ice cream on the side. Read More

Brush the crust with beaten egg whites to help it brown. Also the crust stays on better if you peel the apples and this makes them easier to eat. Make sure you bring the crust up to the top of the cored apple hole and pinch it to make a lip. Spray your cooking sheet with cooking spray and lightly flour it. Read More
