Autumn Recipes, Baked Apples

This is a wonderful recipe for the fall with all the apples coming into season!  It is actually one of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes for several reasons.  It is quick, easy, and tastes just as delicious the next day (we usually make extra on purpose!)  You can even chop the apples and nuts the night before.  We serve this as a side at Thanksgiving but it could also be served over oatmeal, ice cream, pancakes, etc….

Baked Apples


2 cups dried cranberries (sometimes I use half raisins)
1 1/4 cups coarsley chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
6 gala apples, cored and chopped (about 3 pounds)


Combine all ingredients in a large microwave safe dish.  Microwave at high 20 minutes or until apples are soft, stirring occasionally.  Yield: 6 cups (serving size:1/4 cup)
