Baked apples with mascarpone cheese and cherries are a decadent way to enjoy this seasonal fruit. You can use any apple varietal for this recipe, both Pippen and Fuji apples work well.
Slice 1/2-inch piece off top of Each apple; reserve. Core apples using small melon baller; discard core. Peel upper one-fourth of each apple; place in shallow baking dish just large enough to hold apples. Replace apple tops and pour 1/4 cup hot water around apples. Bake at 350 F 45 minutes, basting occasionally, or until apples are tender but still hold their shape.
