Sarah’s Notes: We do not use the dried cranberries; we find it makes this too sweet. We just use fresh or frozen cranberries in the same amount. We also tend to cut down the brown sugar by a third or so. Extra cinnamon – even up to an additional teaspoon – also works. I usually like to do the whole thing the night before, including the nuts and cook it with a cover so as not to lose the water to steam, since the saucy part is especially good on yogurt or oatmeal.
From Cooking Light
Chop the nuts and apples the night before, and combine with the rest of the ingredients in the morning. Serve these juicy baked apples over slices of Spiced Pumpkin Bread, warm bowls of oatmeal, or pancakes. Ida Red and McIntosh apples also work well.
Combine all ingredients in a large microwave-safe dish. Microwave at high 20 minutes or until apples are soft, stirring occasionally.
