Roasted Butter Apples with Whipped Cream

Serves 4


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Rub 1 tablespoon butter on bottom and sides of a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Take quartered apples and cut in half lengthwise. Lay on one side making sure apples are all facing the same direction.
  • Melt remaining 1/2 cup butter in small skillet or saucepan over medium. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and Cayenne pepper, and heat until fragrant and just beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Whisk in brown sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Spoon butter mixture evenly over apples.
  • Bake in preheated oven until apples start to soften, 20-25 minutes. Baste apples with juices from bottom of pan. Increase oven temperature to 400°F and bake until apples are nicely browned and very tender, about 5-8 minutes.
  • Place whipping cream and powdered sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer (or use a hand mixer) and whip cream to stiff peaks.
  • Serve apples topped with a big scoop whipped cream.
