These are great on a chilly morning or for an afternoon treat. Kids love to help assemble them.


3/4 cup firmly packed dried cranberries, chopped
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons Horizon Organic unsalted butter, softened
5 medium apples
1 cup pulp-free orange juice
1/4 cup Horizon Organic unsalted butter, cut into 5 cubes

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, combine the cranberries, walnuts, brown sugar, and butter. Core the apples, making each opening large enough to hold 1/5 of the cranberry mixture, peel the top third of each apple. Arrange the apples, cavity side up, in a 13" x 9" baking dish, and fill the cavities with the cranberry mixture. Sprinkle any remaining filling around the apples, pour the orange juice around them, and dot with butter cubes. Bake apples 15 minutes and baste with juices. Continue to bake, basting regularly, until tender, another 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Transfer to serving bowls and spoon pan juices over each.
