Cactus Apple Surprise ~ World of Warcraft

You will need:

And six pretty apples.

6 medium apples
1 cup orange juice
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup crushed walnuts, toasted
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup honey

Remove a 1/2-inch slice from tops of the apples. 
With a melon baller or a spoon remove core, stopping about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the apple. 

In a medium bowl combine oats, brown sugar, almonds, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Stir in softened butter until combined. 
Arrange the prepared apples in a baking dish 

Fill and top apples with oat mixture. 

When ready to bake, pour remaining orange juice around the apples and cover with foil. 

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 50 minutes. 

Check them at 30 minutes and again at 45. 

I baked them for 50 minutes and I baked them too long. 
You can see they started falling apart.

Remove foil; bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until tender. 

Cool about 30 minutes. 
Transfer to a platter or plates and drizzle with honey. 
Server hot with ice cream or cold with vanilla yogurt.

 I had neither, I am a sad panda.
