Maple Walnut Baked Apples

Ingredients:

3-4 firm fleshed apples (I prefer honeycrisp)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup apple juice or cider
1/2 cup maple syrup (get 100% pure maple syrup, not the cheap stuff that's basically flavored corn syrup. Trust me.)
3 TBSP butter, melted
1/4 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg, ground clove
ice cream

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Cut apples in half and cut out core. Place in a deep sided baking dish, peel side down.
3. Mix together apple juice and 2 TBSP maple syrup. Pour into baking dish over and around apples.
4. Mix together melted butter, remaining syrup, walnuts, fruit, and spices.
5. Spoon onto apples, trying to keep as much of the topping on the apples as possible.Don't leave any of the liquid behind!
6. Cover baking dish with foil.
7. Bake 30-40 minutes.
8. Serve in a bowl topped with ice cream and a little of the pan liquid as sauce.
