Baked Stuffed Apple

"An apple is filled with a cinnamon cheesecake center. I used a Braeburn apple but any variety will work. Great for a cold night! Serve with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream."

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cut the stem out of the apple and hollow out the center until it is about 1 1/2 inches wide without going through the bottom. In a small cup, stir together the cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Set aside half of this mixture, and mix the rest with the cream cheese and dried cranberries.
  3. Sprinkle some of the reserved cinnamon sugar into the apple's cavity. Fill with the cream cheese mixture, and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on the top. Place the apple in a small baking dish.
  4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the apple is tender enough to easily pierce with a fork.

I made four of these little gems last night. I did not add the additional sugar to any of the four apples and I used dried blueberries only because I didn't have any dried cranberries. I used Pinata apples which are very sweet on their own, baking them only made them sweeter which made me glad I didn't add the sugar. The only person who did not like this dessert was my husband. The kids and I REALLY liked ours. Great low-calorie dessert that was simple to make with on hand ingredients. I'm SO making this again.


I love baked apples and this looked pretty simple so I had to give this a try and I'm glad I did. I cut back on the sugar a bit and used brown instead of white. You could easily sub raisins for the cranberries or add some nuts if you like. These smelled very good and once they came out of the oven I drizzled them with a little caramel sauce. Perfect with vanilla ice cream and a bit of whipped cream on top!


Well I was in the mood for a fall desert and needed something to keep the kids busy tonight while dinner was cooking. I am not a big fan of baked apples unless they are very sweet, so I came across this recipe and liked the combination of Cranberries and apples. I made a couple changes. First being that I made it for 3 apples instead of just 1, so I tripled all ingredients. I have no nutmeg, so I substituted 1 tsp. of dark brown sugar to make the apple sweeter. I also had no dried cranberries on hand, so I used a Tlbsp. of canned cranberries. Everything else I followed, including cooking times. The family LOVED these. They were perfectly sweet topped with some cool whip and some of the extra sugar mixture on top to make it look pretty. I am going to try some oats on top or graham cracker crumbs to give it a different texture, because I am a huge fan of apple crisp. All in all, this is an EXTREMELY simple and delicious dish that can be thrown together quickly, and is something the kids can help with. It cooked while we ate dinner. Just great.
