Baked Stuffed Apples


Combining the best of two recipes gave us this delicious fall dessert. I served the stuffed apples in a waffle bowl. Serve warm with ice cream or half-and-half if desired, spooning the sauce from the baking dish over the ice cream.

Prep Time:

Total Time:
1 hrs 5 mins
4 apples


  • cup dried cranberries

  • cup toasted sliced almonds

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 4 large baking apples, cored

  • ¼ cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix cranberries, almonds, butter, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Fill each apple cavity evenly with the mixture and place in a baking dish. Add water to the leftover filling and pour around apples.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven, basting twice with the liquid from the baking dish, until apples are tender, 50 to 60 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes:

I used Fresh Gourmet(R) honey roasted almonds and dried and sweet cranberries from Kroger(R).

You can use any dried fruit you want, like dates or raisins, and any nut you prefer. You can use apple juice instead of water.
