Level:
Intermediate

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 1 cup sugar, divided, plus 1/2 cup
  • 10 large Golden Delicious apples
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 (9-inc)h circle pre-baked puff pastry
  • Vanilla ice cream
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a 9-inch shallow saucepan (about 9 by 3-inches), melt the butter. Stir in 1/2 cup of sugar and cook until golden brown.

  • Peel, core and quarter the apples. In a non-reactive bowl, combine the apples and lemon juice. Start arranging the apple quarters in a flower-like fashion. Continue to do this until all the apples are used, forming a second layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, until golden brown. Turn the apples over and place in the oven and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Before serving, return pan over medium heat to loosen caramel. Move the pan and when you see the apples loosen, remove from heat. Top with the pre-baked puff pastry and turn upside down onto a serving platter. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and caramelize with a propane torch or a creme brulee iron. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
