Baked Apple Dessert Recipe

Baked apples look a lot more difficult to make than they actually are, so they are a great dinner party dessert.  And as they have apples in them, you know you are helping your guests/family/friends to be that much healthier - remember the adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away!  Perfect for a autumn or winter pudding, kids and adults alike will love this - and it's a great way to combine a few of your five a day. We use cranberries and pecans for our filling but feel free to experiment with other ingredients.
