Method

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Place apples in a 9x13-inch baking dish or attractive casserole dish large enough to hold all apples.

Retain the bottoms of the cored apples; don't core all the way through.

Fill the apple cavities with the cranberries and nuts.

In a medium bowl, mix cranberry juice, maple syrup, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and cornstarch. Pour the liquid over the top of the apples.

Cover lightly with foil and bake until apples are tender and the syrup has become syrupy, 50 minutes to 1 hour.
