  1. Stuff the apples the day before, cover and chill until ready to bake.

  2. These cheese-stuffed apples are a halfway house between dessert and a cheese course. We used red dessert apples but if you prefer, use Bramleys, adding 2 tbsp more sugar in step 2. Bramleys break down more quickly so check after 40 minutes.
