Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: Medium bowl Large spoon Small seal-able plastic bag Rolling pin Paring knife (use with an adult) Melon-baller Medium baking dish

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

In a medium bowl mix together the apple juice, dried cherries, raisins, dates, and honey with a spoon. Put the cookies in the plastic bag and seal the bag. Break the cookies up into very small pieces with the rolling pin. Mix the broken cookies with the fruit. Set the bowl aside. 

Cut about a 1/2-inch slice off the top of each apple. (The apple tops are perfect for snacking.) Scoop out the seeds of the apple with a melon-baller to make a pocket. Pack the fruit filling into the apples. Top each apple with a 1/2 teaspoon of the butter. Poke a cinnamon stick into the center of the filling, like the stem of an apple. Set the stuffed apples snugly in a oven-proof baking dish and 1/3 cup water to the pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until the apple is soft and the top is slightly browned. Cool to room temperature before serving.

Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. Limit the child to tasks that are safe and age-appropriate.
