large cooking apples
cup packed brown sugar
cup sweetened dried cranberries
cup cranberry-apple drink
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground nutmeg
Chopped nuts, if desired
Core apples. Fill centers of apples with brown sugar and cranberries. Place apples in 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.
In small bowl, mix cranberry-apple drink and butter; pour over apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours.
To serve, spoon apples into dessert dishes. Spoon sauce over apples. Sprinkle with nuts.
Some cooking apples hold their shape better after cooking. Try Jonagold, Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, Beacon, San Rose or Wealthy apples.
Like apple pie with Cheddar cheese? Sprinkle these hot baked apples with shredded Cheddar cheese instead of the nuts.
