 Baked Apple Surprise
This sweet-savory recipe is a favorite. Use Brie instead of blue cheese if you like things creamier. My tip? Bake the apples in a muffin tin so they won’t roll around. —Jessica Levinson, South Nyack, New York
2 ServingsPrep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min.


  • 2 medium apples
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons bran flakes
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar


  • Cut apples in half lengthwise; remove cores. Place in an ungreased
  • 8-in. square baking dish. Fill each half with 1 teaspoon blue
  • cheese.
  • In a small bowl, combine the oats, bran flakes, golden raisins,
  • raisins and brown sugar; spoon into apples. Top with remaining
  • cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until
