Dried Cranberries (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. For my baked apples, I used brown sugar, cinnamon, and dried cranberries. I cored the apples, mixed in just a bit of the ingredients until I reached the top of the apple. I cut little slits into the top, placed a slither of butter on it, filled an oven safe container with a little bit of water and placed it in the oven for 30-45 minutes.
(This goes perfectly with some vanilla ice cream!)
