|1||cup cranberry apple juice|
|1/4||cup red wine or cranberry apple juice|
|1||to 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar|

- Place a collapsible steamer basket in the bottom of a large saucepan; add 2 cups water to pan. Arrange apples cut-side down on steamer basket.

- In a small saucepan, combine cranberry juice, wine, sugar, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. Bring to a boil and continue boiling 5 minutes or until it reduces to about 1/2 cup.
- In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon water with the cornstarch and stir until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to the reduced juice mixture and cook 1 minute or until thickened slightly, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pour over apples. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour to absorb flavors or up to 24 hours. Serve apples with sauce and whipped cream, if desired.
