Recipe – Baked Apples with Cranberries

Boo is learning to cook.  Today, he learned how to smoke a turkey on the charcoal grill.  Not wanting to waste all of the heat left over when the bird was done, we made dessert.


4 large apples, cored, sliced and cut into 1 inch pieces. I used 3 Fuji’s and 1 Granny Smith.
Lemon juice
Half cup light brown sugar,
Half stick of butter, melted
Cinnamon to taste
Handful of dried cranberries

Lightly coat apples with lemon juice in bowl to keep them from browning.

Mix in butter, cinnamon, cranberries, and brown sugar

Lay down two layers of aluminum foil 12 to 15 inches long. Pour mixture onto center of tin foil. Fold aluminum up in a drugstore wrap.

I used the residual heat from the charcoal/wood in our grill to cook the package for an hour. If you want to use your oven, I’d experiment a few times at around 325F to figure out how long to bake. We just let it cook in the grill while we ate.

The apples and cranberries were soft, but not too mushy. The butter and brown sugar made a really tasty sauce without being sticky or overly sweet. Some might like whipped cream or vanilla ice cream with it, but it was good on its own.

Irish Woman said it could probably have included walnuts or pecans. We’ll try that next time.

Made enough for three or four servings.
