Heavenly Baked Apples

Ingredients
1 1/4
cups apricot nectar
1/3
cup snipped dried apricots
2
tablespoons dried cherries or cranberries
4
medium baking apples (such as Rome or Winesap)
2
tablespoons sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8
teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2
teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine apricot nectar, dried apricots, and dried cherries or cranberries in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Drain fruit, reserving liquid.
  3. Meanwhile, core apples almost through to bottom. Peel a strip about 1 inch wide around the middle of each. Use the tines of a fork to make a crisscross or wavy pattern in the peeled apple. Place apples in a 2-quart square baking dish.
  4. Combine the drained fruit mixture, sugar, and nutmeg. Spoon into centers of apples. Combine reserved liquid, cardamom, and vanilla; pour over and around apples. Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until apples are tender, basting occasionally with the cooking liquid. Before serving, spoon liquid over apples again. Serve warm. Makes 4 servings.
