Ingredients

  • 4 medium cooking apples, such as Granny Smith or Jonathan

  • ¼ cup crumbled Gorgonzola, Stilton, or Roquefort cheese

  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

  • 4 teaspoon honey

  • Honey

Directions

  1. Core apples almost to the bottom, leaving approximately 1/2 inch. Remove 1 inch of peel from the top of each apple.

  2. In a small bowl stir together Gorgonzola, walnuts, and melted butter. Fill each cored apple three-fourths full. Drizzle 1 teaspoon honey into each. Add remaining filling to apples. Place apples in a disposable foil pan.

  3. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat over center of grill. Place apples on rack in the center of the grill. Cover; grill for 30 to 40 minutes or until tender. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust grill for indirect grilling. Place apples on grill rack. Grill as above.)

  4. Drizzle each serving with additional honey; serve warm.
