Hello to everyone again! I hope you all have been enjoying the fall weather as much I have been. :) I cannot express how much I just love this time of year. The beautiful leaves, the heavenly smells, the addicting flavors... AHH I love it!      Anyways... I have a recipe for you! 
Nothing says fall the same way that baked apples do. And these aren't just regular baked apples... they are SUPER STUFFED with oats and cranberries and some of those amazing spices we all love this time of year. Ready? Here we go! 

Jenni's Super Stuffed Baked Apples
6 regular sized granny smith apples
4 Tbs butter, at room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/3 cup pecan pieces 
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400. 
In a medium mixing bowl, add all ingredients except apples. Use a spoon to make sure it is all mixed well and butter is thoroughly mixed in. Set aside.
Core your apples, if you have an apple corer... obviously this is ideal. However I do not. So I used a paring knife. DO NOT PIERCE THE BOTTOM OF THE APPLE! You need to keep it in tact to hold all the goods. :) Sprinkle lemon juice over the apples to keep them from browning.

Take your filling and divide it evenly between the 6 apples. For an added touch I put about a teaspoon of caramel on top of each apple. Place apples in a baking dish (I used a 9'' round baking pan). Put about a 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Cover in foil and bake for 35 minutes. Take foil off of pan and bake for 10 more minutes to brown the tops.
Serve with ice cream drizzled with caramel and you've got a super simple dessert that everyone is going to love and be impressed with!
