Baked Apples and Fruit

I woke up wanting something sweet and yummy that would make my house smell wonderful.   Since I’m trying to behave myself dietary wise I decided against baking cookies.  There were a half dozen fuji apples sitting on the counter so decided to take a few and turn them into a treat.  This is not a super sweet recipe but still tastes great!  If you want to add sweetness warm up a serving and place them over some vanilla ice cream.  It’s delicious!

Ingredients

4 large apples, I used Fuji

1/4 cup dried apricots julienned

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Use an apple slicer to cut apples into 8 equal slices, then half each slice.  Take a large bowl and fill with cold water and lemon juice, add apples slices while working.  Once all fruit is prepared drain the apples.  Add the fruit and all other ingredients.  Bake covered for 30 minutes until the apples are a soft texture.  Turn off oven and let apples sit in warm oven for 15 additional minutes.  Refrigerate once cooled.  Serve either warm or cool.
