In small saucepan, combine apple juice, honey, butter and nutmeg; bring to boil. Reduce heat and boil gently for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.
Meanwhile, core apples almost to bottom, leaving base intact. Pare off 3/4-inch (2 cm) wide strip around core at top; trim base to make level if necessary. Place in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish.
Pour juice mixture over apples. Cover and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for about 45 minutes or until tender, basting twice.
Combine cranberries, almonds and cookie crumbs; stuff into apple cavities. Baste with pan juices; bake for 5 minutes longer. Baste again before serving.
