These easy bourbon apples are cooked with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve them as a side dish, dessert, or as a topping for pancakes, French toast or oatmeal!
Servings: 4 people
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon Or use Five Spice
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- 2 pounds apples, cored + thinly sliced Peeling optional
- 1 ½ ounces bourbon Or use another unflavored whiskey
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar, plus more if desired
- The liquid in the pan is thin and I want it to be a syrup: For a thicker syrup, increase the sugar to ½ cup.
- My apples fell apart: Some varieties of apples (like McIntosh and Golden Delicious) tend to fall apart and turn to applesauce when cooking. Use another variety or only cook until just tender.
- The amount of liquid will depend on how juicy your apples are.
- Make sure to adjust the sugar to taste. Some apples are much sweeter than others.
- The bourbon can be swapped for any unflavored whiskey.
- Omit the bourbon to make this recipe kid-friendly.
