Servings 4 servings


  • 4 Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apples
  • 4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries or cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut a one inch slice off top of apple, to reserve as a lid for the finished baked apple and set aside. This should leave a flat surface for the top of each apple. Then core the rest of apple leaving 1/2 inch from the bottom uncored so the stuffing does not fall out the bottom. Place the apples into an ungreased baking dish.
  3. Fill each apple with 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon butter, and 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. Evenly distribute the dried cherries, walnuts and pomegranate seeds between each apple. Top with more cinnamon as desired.
  4. Fill the baking dish with water until water level is about 1/4 inch deep. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until apple are tender when pierced with a fork. Spoon baking liquid over apples to baste during cooking process if desired.
