Black Cherry Baked Apples*

2 baking apples
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons dried cherries, raisins, or apricots
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup diet black cherry soda

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Using an apple corer or sharp knife, remove the apple cores from the stem ends without cutting the apples all the way through the outer end. Place the apples cored side up in a 9" X 9" baking dish.

Sprinkle the apples inside and outside with the cinnamon. Spoon the cherries or raisins and the walnuts into the apples. Drizzle a little soda into each apple. Pour the remaining soda into the baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
