In a small bowl, combine the dried cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon and Calvados, or liquor of your choice; allow to stand for 15 minutes, then stir in the walnuts. Meanwhile, using a melon baller, generously core apples almost to bottom, leaving base intact. cut off 1-inch wide strip of peel around core at top. Place the apples in 9-inch square baking dish. Stuff dried cranberry mixture into the top of the apples. Pour maple syrup over the top of the apples. Pour cider into the baking dish, and sprinkle fresh cranberries around apples. Spread softened butter over the apples and bake apples, uncovered, at 375-F for 40-45 minutes or until tender, basting every 15 minutes. Serve apples in bowls, using some of the cider sauce and cranberries as a garnish by pouring it over the apples.
