Look for cranberry-orange sauce near the applesauce in the canned fruit aisle of your supermarket. If you can't find it, 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce will also work.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring cranberry-orange sauce and next 4 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Arrange apple quarters in a round baking dish coated with cooking spray; pour cranberry mixture over apples.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until apples are tender. Sprinkle evenly with chopped pecans. Bake 5 more minutes. Garnish, if desired.

This is delicous and has become a must- have dish at our family events! You can't buy the cranberry orange sauce anymore so I add some fresh orange zest to add a little flavor and leave the pecans off. I prefer to cut the apples up a bit so they cook more evenly.
