Day 114: Fruit and Nut Baked Apple

Fruit & Nut Baked Apples

4 Large baking apples (Rome Beauty or Cortland) * I used Fiji cause I couldn't find what the recipe asked for. These should be apples good for baking/cookin-i hope!

1 Tbsp Lemon juice
1/3 cup chopped dried apricots
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans *I used pecans
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar (which equals under 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup water

Scoop out center of each apple, leaving 1 1/2 inch-wide cavity about 1/2 inch from the bottom. Peel top of apple down about 1 inch. Brush peeled edges evenly with lemon juice. Mix apricots, nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Add butter, mix well. Spoon mixture evenly into apple cavaties.

Pour 1/2 cup water onto bottom of slow cooker. Place 2 apples in slow cooker. Arrange remaining 2 apples above but not directly on top of bottom apples. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours or until apples are tender. Serve warm or at room temperature with caramel ice cream topping, if desired.

This recipe is straight from the kitchen of my greatest fan, Marla. (Just a side note about Marla...she seriously has the best attitude ever. She is always smiling and laughing. It is so contagious! Also, she is like 9 months prego but only looks about 3 months along...love her!) She invited me over to her house to try out this delectable dessert. If any of you would like to do the same thing, you are more than welcome to invite me over!!! It was awesome. Make sure to add the caramel sauce and maybe a little ice cream if you so desire. 4 stars
