Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed dried apricots, chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the apricots, walnuts, brown sugar, and butter.

  • Core the apples, making each opening large enough to hold 1/6 of the apricot mixture, peel the top third of each apple. Arrange the apples, cavity side up, in a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish, and fill the cavities with the apricot mixture. Sprinkle any remaining filling around the apples, pour the orange juice around them, and dot with butter.

  • Bake apples 15 minutes and baste with juices. Continue to bake, basting regularly, until tender, about 1 hour. Remove from oven and let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Transfer to serving bowls, spoon juices over, and serve.

  • Wine suggestion: Sauternes ? B&G or Filhot
