Fruit Baked Apples
A great cold weather dessert, spiced dried fruit mixture fills fresh apples that are baked in an apple cider sauce. The apples fill the house with tempting aromas as they bake.
1/2 cup Equal® Spoonful*
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
2 cups apple cider or juice
1 (6-ounce) package dried mixed fruit, chopped
1 tablespoon stick butter or margarine
8 tart baking apples
1 - Combine Equal®, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium saucepan. Stir in cider and dried fruit. Heat to boiling.
2 - Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until fruit is tender and cider mixture is reduced to about 1 cup. Stir in butter until melted.
3 - Remove cores from apples, cutting into but not through bottoms. Peel 1-inch around tops. Place apples in greased baking pan. Fill centers with fruit. Spoon remaining cider mixture over apples.
4 - Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven about 45 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
* Makes 8 servings.
