Baked Apples



Sift flour and salt into a medium size bowl. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Stir in cream cheese and walnuts. Sprinkle water over mixture. Mix lightly with fork until pastry holds together and leaves the sides of the bowl. Remove from bowl. Knead into a smooth ball (add more flour if necessary) then set aside. Pare apples and core completely. Combine butter, sugar, and spices in a small bowl until smooth and paste like. Spoon into centers of apples. Roll out the pastry. Cut into 6 squares. Place pastry square on top of apple and press pastry firmly around apple, sealing at the bottom. Place in a lightly greased baking pan and bake at 350 for about 60 minutes. While they are baking, I baste them with a solution of water, fructose and a pinch of cinnamon. Serve warm.
