  • 5 medium baking apples (I used cortland)

  • 3 oz chopped raw pecans
  • 1/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
  • 5 tsp grass fed butter



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Clean and core apples.
  3. Be sure not to core all the way through the apple so that the filling does not fall out of the apple.
  4. Gently Score (about 1/4″ deep) the apples half way down all the way around to help avoid splitting.
  5. Mix together the pecans, cinnamon, cranberries and stuff this mixture into the apples.
  6. Top each apple with a tsp of butter.
  7. Put stuffed apples in a 8×8 inch square pan.
  8. In a small bowl combine water, maple syrup and rum. Mix well.
  9. Pour mixture over the apples and bake for 45 minutes or until the apples are soft.
  10. Spoon sauce over apples several times while cooking.
  11. When the apples are done, take the sauce out of the pan and put the sauce in a small sauce pan.
  12. Bring to a boil and gently boil until sauce becomes thick and coats the back of a spoon (about 5 minutes).
  13. Pour over apples and serve.

  1. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    Halle any ideas for the substitution of rum?

  2. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    You don’t want to use alcohol Tina? The alcohol is cooked out pretty much…or is it that you just don’t have rum? If that is the case, vodka would work too. You could always leave it out too.

    Yummy! Can’t wait to try this!

  4. Rhonda Harader Cain says:

    I am thinking this may be a Christmas brunch item. : )

  5. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    I know the alcohol is cooked out, I just don’t have alcohol in my house & it’s not in the budget right now :)

  6. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    got it :) I would just leave it out then, but still cook the sauce down because of the extra water in there.

  7. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    ok thank you

  8. Tracy Carver says:

    Could you maybe use rum extract? I, myself do not drink for religious reasons, but since there isn’t any alcohol in the extract, I’ve used that as a substitute. Also, Halle, we need some good, homemade granola recipe now that’s it’s starting to snow up here in the Great White North!

  9. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I’m on it Tracy :)

  10. Julia Tipple Farver says:

    I’m pretty certain my hubby will want to know how to keep the alcohol from cooking out. LOL! :)))
