  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Cube 1/2 cup butter; place in food processor container. Add flour, cream cheese and 1 tsp. cinnamon sugar; process until mixture forms ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out each half between 2 sheets of parchment to 12x5-inch rectangle. Cut each rectangle crosswise into 24 (1/2-inch-wide) strips. Place in single layer on parchment-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cut 1/2-inch-thick slice off top of each apple; discard removed top. Use small sharp knife to make circular vertical cut around inside of each apple, about 1/4 inch from peel. Use melon baller to remove inside of each apple, cutting between the core and peel. Place cut fruit in medium bowl. Add cranberries and remaining cinnamon sugar; mix lightly. Use knife to cut cores from apples, being careful to not cut through to bottoms of apples.
  • Microwave caramels, milk and remaining butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 min. or until caramels are completely melted and sauce is well blended when stirred. Add to fruit mixture; stir until evenly coated.
  • Stand apples in 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; fill with fruit mixture. Top each with 6 dough strips to resemble lattice crust; firmly press ends of dough strips onto sides of apples to secure. Cover.
  • Bake 45 min. or until apples are tender and crusts are golden brown.

How to Make a Lattice Crust

Place 3 dough strips over filling in each apple. Use remaining strips to make lattice crusts by folding back alternate strips as each cross strip is added.


If you don't have a melon baller, you can instead use a small spoon to scoop out the insides of the apples, being careful to not cut through peels of apples. Chop the removed apple into 1/2-inch pieces before using as directed.
