Garden Of Eden (Crock-Baked) Apples

Serves 4

For apples:

3/4 cup chopped figs
2 tablespoons chopped blanched almonds
1/3 cup boiling water
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon margarine or butter
4 medium large baking apples

For almond cream:

1/2 cup non-fat sour cream
4 teaspoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

In a small bowl, combine figs and almonds; set aside.

In another bowl, stir together boiling water, honey and margarine or butter.

Starting at the blossom end, peel apples about 1/3 of the way down; remove most of the core and seeds, leaving a small amount of core at the bottom.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the fig and almond mixture into each apple.

Place the apples side-by-side in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Pour honey mixture over apples.

Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or until apples are tender. Baste apples with cooking juices.

While the apples are baking in the slow-cooker, prepare the almond cream.

In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients. Refrigerate at least 1 hour for flavors to mingle.

To serve, spoon about 2 tablespoons of the almond cream just off center on each dessert plate. Place an apple on the center.
