Brown Sugared Apples and Cream Recipe

I don’t necessarily like to bake. I will, but I prefer not. So, when I found this recipe, I thought this is like apple pie but without baking. It combines my favorite fall/winter flavors in one, easy dish – cinnamon, brown sugar, and heavy cream! I used two apples instead of one and the sweetness was still strong. Plus, I got to share it with someone which is the best way to enjoy dessert!


In a shallow bowl, toss the sliced apples with the brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Let sit for about 10 minutes, tossing once or twice, until very syrupy. Pour the cream around the perimeter and sprinkle more cinnamon on top. Eat. 

Or, the way I prefer – if you want something warm and cozy, turn on the broiler after you combine the apples, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon – this time, in a broiler safe dish. When the broiler is hot, add the cream to the sugared apples, and slide the dish under the broiler. Cook for about 5 minutes, until bubbly and browning on top. Sprinkle more cinnamon. Eat.
