  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

Scoop out the flesh of the apple into a large bowl, leaving 1/4-inch of flesh with the skin. Stir together apple flesh, cranberries, brown sugar, flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Stuff mixture evenly into hollowed apples. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish. Dot each evenly with butter.
  2. Unroll crust and cut four 4-inch rounds from each crust. Top each apple with a round of crust; flute the edges. Mix egg with 1 teaspoon water; brush over crust. Sprinkle each with sugar and cinnamon. Cut a slit in each crust. Pour 2 cups water into bottom of baking dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until apples are fork tender and crust is golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Serve with Reddi-wip®.
