Microwave version:DSCN0545

Wash and core apples and peel a bit of skin away from around the top. Place into a microwave safe dish (that you can cover with a lid). Add 1 tbl of water to the bottom of the dish. Pour 1 tbl of pomegranate juice into each core. Add 1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon to each hollowed out core area and stuff with dried cranberries

Microwave at HIGH for 2 – 6 min (depending on size of apple.) Let stand for 2 min before serving.

These are just so tasty! Enjoy!DSCN0547

Oven version:

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare apples the same. Place them into a cooking dish that is oven safe. Bake 15 to 18 minutes depending on the size of your apple.
