Think Variety; Think Color: Red


4 medium red firm-fleshed apples
1 cup fresh or dried cranberries
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cream (optional)   


Pre-heat oven to 375ºF.

Partially core apples, starting at the stem end, removing all the seeded core, leaving bottom intact.

Peel each of the apples, leaving at least 1/4 of the peel on the bottom of the apple.

Place in a shallow oil-sprayed baking dish. 

Fill each apple with cranberries and scatter remaining cranberries in baking dish.

Pour maple syrup over apples, sprinkle with brown sugar and top with 1/2 teaspoon butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Bake, basting occasionally, for 35-45 minutes, or until apples are tender and soft.

Remove and allow to cool briefly.

To serve, place each apple in a serving dish, spoon on syrup from the baking dish and serve warm with cream, if desired.
