2 pounds apples (Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Rome Beauty) peeled, cored, cut into 1-inch chunks

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)

1 cinnamon stick

1 large lemon, zested and juiced

Pinch of salt

1/2 gallon French vanilla ice cream, softened

1 cup chopped toasted walnuts

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup butterscotch sauce, warmed

1 1/2 cups your favorite granola


  1. Combine the apples, brown sugar, orange liqueur, cinnamon stick, lemon juice, lemon zest and pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, add the ice cream. Add the walnuts and maple syrup and stir well to combine. Scoop out the ice cream into 4 dishes and top with some of the warm apple compote. Drizzle with butterscotch sauce and sprinkle with the granola. Serve immediately.
