Note to parents: Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. These recipes are appropriate for children of various ages, 4 to 10. When a recipe calls for cooking on the stove, or using a paring knife, an adult should do those activities and let the child assist, if age appropriate.

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.

    Made these today, and the only thing I did different was omit the cookies to decalorize a little. They were delicious, a keeper for sure, loved the cinnamon stick stuck in the center, made it look like a glamorous dessert!!
    a nice, light alternative for dessert, perfect for a cold winter evening.
     

     
    the filling can be adjusted based on what you have in your pantry--i used oats, dried cherries, prunes, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, powdered ginger, and brown sugar.
    This apple recipe is simple to follow and yields a deliciously sweet dessert. I heartily enjoyed it.
    My kids and i loved these apples you have to try them!
