raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit
walnuts or pecans, finely chopped
honey or maple syrup
water or pure juice (apple or cranberry)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pull out apple stem. Use an apple corer to remove seeds and core without breaking
through the bottom of the apple. (Some people also like to remove a circular strip of peel from
the top of the apple to prevent the apple skin from splitting, but I skip that step.)
Arrange apples in a roasting pan or other deep baking dish.
Stuff with fruit and nuts, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Pour 1/2 inch of water or juice into bottom of baking dish.
Cover with pan lid or foil, sealing as tightly as possible.
Bake in preheated oven about 45 minutes, until apples are fork tender.
Baste with juices and serve hot, warm or cold.
Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
