Berry Baked Apples

( blueberry )

4 baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Fuji or Northern Spy
1/2 cup dried fruit, such as blueberries, raisins and/or cranberries
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup frozen, fresh or drained canned blueberries
1/2 cup apple juice

With a paring knife or apple corer, remove cores from the apples. With a knife, peel the top half of the apples. In a small bowl, toss dried fruit and cinnamon and set aside. In 4 microwaveable bowls large enough to hold one apple, place 2 tablespoons blueberries and 2 teaspoons apple juice. Place prepared apples on top of blueberries and evenly divide dried fruit mixture into the cavities and around the apples. Loosely cover each apple with plastic wrap or waxed paper. Microwave until apples are tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate, if desired. Serve warm or cold for breakfast, snack or dessert. Yields 4 portions.
