The warmth of cinnamon brings out the tartness of Granny Smith green apples, while nutmeg offers a hint of something warm and exotic.
Core and peel the apples.
Mix together all other ingredients and stuff the apples. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Make the basting syrup by bringing white sugar, butter and water to the boil with the vanilla. Pour over the apples before baking.
Bake apples in a preheated oven at 150oC for around 20 minutes, occasionally basting the apples with the juices from the tray. Serve hot together with eggnog ice cream or vanilla ice cream.
