How To Make brandied cinnamon apples

  • 1
    Peel, slice, and core your apples. (I cut the apples in wedges.) Mix together 1 tablespoon of the Brandy with the cornstarch. Next, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter. After the butter melts, add the brown sugar to the melted butter. Cook this butter/sugar mixture for a few seconds until the sugar completely dissolves (make sure to stir the mixture while the sugar melts). Then, mix in the brandy/cornstarch mixture, vanilla, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon into the sugar mixture. Next add your sliced apples to the saucepan, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until desired tenderness. Once apples have cooked remove the apples from heat. Once the apples have sit for about two minutes, add the last two tablespoons of Brandy to the apples and stir.
