  • 1 apple Pink Lady Apple is recommended
  • 1 rounded tbsp goat cheese
  • 1 tsp rosemary finely chopped
  • 10 g pine nuts chopped
  • 10 dried cranberries diced
  • 1 pinch garlic powder to taste
  • 1 pinch salt to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper to taste
  • 2 oz apple cider


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut off the top 1/3 of the apple. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds and core so that the walls of the apple are about 1/2 in. thick.
  • In a bowl, combine the goat cheese, rosemary, pine nuts, cranberries, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stuff mixture into the cavity of the apple.
  • In a glass baking dish, pour enough apple cider (I used apple jack and water because I didn’t have any cider) in the bottom to coat the dish. Place apple in dish and tent with aluminum foil so the apple doesn’t dry out. Cook 45 minutes.
  • After cooking, baste the apple flesh with liquid from dish. Let stand a few minutes before eating… it’ll be HOT!
  • *OPTIONAL: Drizzle apple with honey before eating.
