  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. With a long, thin knife, carefully core apples and slice about one-quarter inch off the bottom so the apples will stand in a baking dish. Rub inside with lemon juice.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, mix remaining ingredients, except whiskey and cheese, and gently stuff the cored apples and place in square baking dish that's small enough so the apples touch or are as close together as possible.
  3. Drizzle whiskey over top and cover tightly with foil.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then remove foil. Apples should be softened, but not mushy.
  5. Baste with whiskey liquid, then place a slice of cheese atop each apple and return to oven.
  6. Bake a few minutes more until cheese is melted and just begins to brown.
  7. Serve immediately.

This is wonderful with grilled pork tenderloin.
