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.
