Cranberry Stuffed Apples

Cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts add a homey autumn flavor to these stuffed apples, but the slow cooker does most of the work for me. —Graciela Sandvigen, Rochester, New York

    My apples exploded in the crockpot in just over 2 hrs.!!! Apples went in looking picture perfect, came out like chunky applesauce (complete w/ lg. peel)! Next time I'll try baking in oven. Taste was good, but looked NOTHING like picture.

    Very very good and simple. I didn't have fresh or frozen cranberries, only dried, and it still was wonderful!

    Delicious!! Since I was running short on time I put the apples in my covered stoneware baker and baked them at 350* for 30 minutes. Very happy with the results, will definitely make these again!
