“"There are few aromas more comforting than that of apple pie. This is as easy and old-school a dessert as bananas Foster and, thanks to a generous dousing with Calvados or Apple Jack, equally boozy." From the WSJ, January 25, 2013 *posting for safe keeping.”

Directions

  1. 1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter and cook until it foams. Once foaming subsides, stir in sugar and spice and cook 1 minute to allow flavors to meld.
  2. 2. Lay apples into pan in a single layer and cook until fruit begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Pour Calvados into pan. Use a long match or candle lighter to ignite alcohol. Boil until flames subside, 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve with premium ice cream or crème fraîche. I recommend Recipe #144139.
  4. *Demerara sugar is a type of unrefined sugar with a large grain and a pale to golden yellow color.
