Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup brandy or cider
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into eighths
  • 3 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and cut into eighths
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a 12-by-14-inch roasting pan, or an 11-by-17-inch baking pan, combine the brandy, cinnamon, cloves, lemon juice and zest, brown sugar, and butter. Add all the apples, and toss.
