Vegetable-oil cooking spray
6 Rome apples
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup granola
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup raspberry jam
- Prepare the apples: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Wash, dry, and core the apples, leaving the bottoms intact. Brush apple flesh with lemon juice. Arrange apples in the baking dish.
- Make the stuffing: Toss cranberries with granola, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon into apples and top with butter pieces.
- Make the glaze: Heat lemon juice and jam together in a microwave oven at 100 percent power in a glass bowl until mixture bubbles — about 30 seconds. Brush apples with the mixture and drizzle extra topping into the filled apples.
- Bake and serve: Place baking dish on the middle rack of oven and bake uncovered until apples are soft — about 55 minutes. Serve warm.
