Hot Spiced Apples with Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

This delicious recipe is like a hot apple pie sundae! Try serving for dessert with Veal Meatball and Broccoli Rabe Stoup. Note: this recipe contains alcohol (optional).


  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, cored and chopped

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • A pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

  • A pinch of salt

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
