  • ½ Cup water
For Each Apple you'll need:
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon and ⅛ teaspoon allspice (just a smudge of allspice)
  • 1 Tablespoon (or pat) of butter
  1. Core each apple and peel a small strip from around the top of each one (about 1 inch). Place in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Combine brown sugar, spices, and dried cranberries in a small bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Stuff each apple with filling, all the way to the top, pressing down with your finger to make room for more filling. Top each one with a pat of butter.
  4. Pour water into bottom of slow cooker.
