Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place oats, brown sugar, pecans, salt and cold butter in bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade. Pulse about three- 4 second bursts until becomes crumbly. Transfer to medium bowl and stir in cinnamon chips. Set aside.

Peel a 1-inch strip from the top of each apple. Using melon ball tool, scoop out cavity in each apple, leaving bottom in tact. Fill each apple with cinnamon chip streusel and place in baking dish. Pour apple cider around apples and bake 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven.

Pour apple cider from baking dish into small saucepan. Stir in sugar and simmer over medium heat until cider becomes syrupy and is reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in butter.  To serve, place apple on plate and drizzle with apple cider reduction. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
