INGREDIENTS
¾ cup packed brown sugar
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
¼ cup dried cherries or cranberries
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
4 medium-large baking apples (Rome, Granny Smith, Braeburn, or Gala)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch pieces
¹∕³ cup apple juice or cider
Instructions
Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Set aside ¼ cup sugar mix for topping. Add cherries, raisins and almonds and combine to make filling. Core apples ¾ of the way down. With a melon baller, scrape out a small cavity (about ¼ cup). Peel top ¹∕³ of the apples. Stuff some filling in each cavity. Reserve any excess filling.
Place prepared apples in ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Sprinkle remaining sugar and spice mix over tops. Dot each with ½ teaspoon butter. Pour apple juice around edges. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 4 hours and press Low. Slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm until ready to serve.
To serve, place apples on dessert plates. Top with any loose nuts and fruit. Drizzle with pan juices.*
*Note: You can thicken the cooking juices to make a sauce. Carefully strain liquid
into a Cuisinart® 1¾-quart saucepan; set over medium high heat and boil until
reduced and thickened. Pour over apples or serve on the side.
