1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar, 3 tablespoons roughly chopped dried cherries, 3 tablespoons chopped dried figs, 2 tablespoons roughly chopped sliced toasted almonds, 2 tablespoons roughly chopped toasted pecans, 6 large, firm baking apples, such as cortlands, cored but not peeled, 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces, 1/2 cup apple cider, 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Method: preheat the oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, dried fruit, and nuts. Place the apples in a baking pan or casserole dish and stuff their cavities with the fruit and nut mixture. Place a piece of butter on top of the stuffing. Pour the apple cider and maple syrup into the bottom of the baking pan and bake the apples, basting every 5 to 7 minutes, until they are tender, 25 to 35 minutes. When the apples are tender, transfer them to a serving platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Pour the pan juices into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Simmer the mixture until it becomes syrupy and reduces to a sauce, about 10 minutes. Serve over the apples.

Shelly, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. This recipe for the dip looks SO good! I might need to try this in the next few days.

Love your website ;) Found some yummy goodies I am going to be trying out in the coming weeks.

I really wish I could do the all over theme on my blog instead of just the header - but today.com limits what we can change. (but hey they are paying me - can't turn up my nose at that).

Anyway, your site rocks and I am adding you to my sidebar.
