- Prep Time 10 minutes
- Total Time 25 minutes
- Yield Makes 6
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 6 Granny Smith or Red Delicious apples
- 1 cup toasted pecans (optional), coarsely chopped
- Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and coat with cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil over high. Reduce to medium-high and simmer, undisturbed, until caramel is golden brown, 8 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully stir in cream (mixture will sputter). Transfer to a small bowl and let cool 5 minutes.
